It’s time to print participation sheets for your students!
- Students of all ages and levels participate in one of 13 levels of musicianship, following the COLORADO STATE MUSIC TEACHERS ASSOCIATION COMPREHENSIVE GUIDELINES for Achievement Day. In addition to playing two pieces for another teacher, students can participate in a music-themed art show, take a theory test at their level, play music games and enjoy refreshments.
- Unique to our Achievement Day is a Composer’s Corner, where videos of original student compositions are played throughout the day. Students completing the composing option may submit a video of their composition to Kaye Craig by January 23 and it will be added to a continuous loop of composition performances shown on TV in the composer corner of the arts and craft show.
- For students in 7th grade and up and playing Achievement Day level 7 or higher, we also offer a TEEN PERFORMANCE CLASS. This year we are excited to feature a class with pianist and educator Joseph Harkins. This class will briefly discuss the historic roots of the blues, dissect famous jazz blues melodies, and allow students time to improvise and compose their own short blues motive.

Registration Deadline (to Yoko Ashcroft): December 27
Deadline to turn in composition videos (to Kaye Craig): January 23
