Music Artistry Program Grant

The Music Artistry Program allows students to perform for a highly-respected visiting artist, work one-on-one with the visiting artist to improve their performances, and receive written comments and a certificate for their hard work.

The WSMTA board of directors has set aside money to enable teachers to enter low-income, deserving students in the the Music Artistry 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 MAP Grants will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis.

Music Literacy Program Grant

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.
