Because I am a member of Music Teachers Association of California, students are eligible to participate in any of the programs listed at mtacfresno.org.
Activities may include:
Certificate of Merit - a comprehensive examination in technique, repertoire, music theory, aural skills and music history. Available for levels Prep through Advanced. Students who wish to be evaluated in the spring must attend monthly group lessons to cover theory and aural skills.
Piano Celebration - students prepare 1 or 2 pieces to play for an evaluator and receive a written evaluation and rating
Baroque Festival - students play a piece from the baroque era for judges who select student to move on to a regional performance event. The festival has several recitals, a masterclass, a professional concert and other activities.
Fall Festival - fun theme recitals, including a Halloween costume and performance contest
Solo Competition - a branch-sponsored event with cash prizes
Other competitions are open to qualified students.
I also have at least one studio recital each year.
