UMTA offers several statewide programs for students:

The UMTA/MTNA PERFORMANCE COMPETITIONS are extremely competitive and focus on providing performance opportunities at an advanced level, held in the Fall. Check here for additional information: MTNA PERFORMANCE COMPETITIONS INFO


The annual CONCERTO COMPETITION, is also competitive and is generally held in February. Check the related pages for competition information.


The AIM (Achievement in Music) and FAIM (Future Artists In Music) programs provide opportunities for students to measure their progress in areas such as theory, technique, performance, ear-training, and sightreading while reaching their maximum potential.


PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS offer ALL students the opportunity to perform for a judge and receive written comments. Depending on their performance, they may be invited to perform in an honors recital at their local level, and also might be invited to perform at the State Honors Recital held in conjunction with the UMTA Conference each year.
