The Music Literacy Program began in 2007-08 as the Musicianship Examinations and is designed to be a suggested curriculum of independent music study. This curriculum is coupled with an annual evaluation sponsored by WSMTA local associations.
The WSMTA board of directors has set aside money to enable teachers to enter low-income, deserving students in the the Music Literacy Program. Applications for these grants are made by the teacher on behalf of the student(s). Teachers are asked to limit their applications to students with real financial need (max. of two students per teacher). WSMTA Music Literacy Program Grants will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis.
This program is aimed at students of teachers who do not participate in MusicLink. MusicLink students should continue to apply in the usual way.
