This event happens each year on a Saturday in early February and is hosted by the Professional Music Teachers Association in the area. It is at a member school in the region and comprises a full day of competitions hosting 1000’s of students from the area. Each student is judged by a competent judge and scored on their piece. Then they have a 10 minute “lesson time” with that professional. It is designed as a learning opportunity for performing students. All pieces must be classical or “art pieces” from the classical tradition and must be accompanied when necessary.
