Event description:

  • Achievement Day is the valuable opportunity in which we recognize and celebrate students’ effort, achievement and talent in their music study. Students can participate either as a solo player or as an ensemble group of 2 to 6 performers. Each student (or each ensemble group) performs two required solo pieces (one of them memorized, along with the scales in the key of each piece) (or two required ensemble pieces for an ensemble group) and complete minimum two ~ maximum five music related activities called options. Upon completion, students receive evaluators’ comments on their performances, graded options, certificates, and ribbons for participation.

Super Achiever Status:

  • The Super Achiever Medals are awarded to those who passed on solo (or ensemble) pieces, scored 80 or above in minimum one musical knowledge option (theory, terms & signs, history, ear training), passed on minimum one technique option (scales, chords, arpeggios), and passed on any two more options (total four options). To be eligible for the Super Achiever status, the students need to register as SA candidates.

Non BAMTA member teachers are welcome to enter students.

Students of any instruments are welcome.
