            SPECIAL RECOGNITION  

 

The Music Teachers’ Association of California® (MTAC) sponsors the music study program Certificate of Merit® (CM). The program provides a standard of curriculum that requires students to strive for focused musical excellence in performance, technique, ear training, sight reading/singing, and music theory.

Initiated in 1933, the annual statewide program involves approximately 30,000 students in piano, violin, cello, viola, flute, French horn, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, baritone/euphonious horn, voice, and harp.

 

Only those students who the take the CM exam and who's test results place them in the top 2%, are eligible to perform at the annual MTAC convention. 

 

Below are some of my studens who have participated in the MTAC throughout the years as a result of their persistant hard work and dedication in reaching this high level recognition.
