The WSMTA Music Literacy Program includes an annual theory and general musicianship exam, proctored by our local teachers. State honors are awarded to high achievers.
The Music Artistry Program is a wonderful opportunity for students to receive written and aural feedback from a master teacher. The Music Artistry Program is held in March.
WSMTA Outstanding Artist Competition
This competition was established to provide a positive step for students wanting to compete in the MTNA Performance Competitions in future years. As a state level competition, monetary awards are available.
The Young Composers Project gives students of WSMTA members the opportunity to submit their compositions for judging and comments by qualified composers. The project provides educational feedback, a goal-setting format, and a focus on music that students love - their own compositions.
MTNA Student Composition Competition
The intent of the competition is to encourage creativity and self-expression in student musicians at all levels through the art of composing. WSMTA winners advance to Northwest Division and possibly to the National competitions.
MTNA Student Performance Competition
For advanced students interested in performance competition, the MTNA performance competitions offer that opportunity. The competitions are open to any student who plays at the level of the required music, and are offered at the Junior, Senior, and Collegiate levels. The state competitions are considered the primary educational level, with the division and national levels showcasing outstanding performances and honoring significant pedagogical achievement.
