Students of OMTA teachers have the option of participating in Syllabus, a music evaluation program in which students are tested on their mastery of various musical concepts. These concepts are divided into 10 levels of difficulty and include music theory, sight reading, rhythm reading, repertoire, and technique. It is open to students studying classical piano, organ, strings, voice, woodwinds, guitar, harp, and jazz. A student prepares for the exam by studying the curriculum outlined in the OMTA Syllabus Manual.
The Syllabus evaluation is designed to motivate students to achieve musical goals. Each student is tested one-on-one by an adjudicator, who provides a written critique of the student’s performance. Students who complete the evaluation are awarded a merit certificate. The evaluations are held in private music studios and schools throughout Portland and its surrounding suburbs.
The Level X Recitals will take place Sunday, June 3 at 2 & 3:30. Click here for information and registration. The deadline is May 24, 2018. The chairman is Lacie Mitts.
