MTNA Student Performance Competitions

Exceptionally talented students can pursue excellence and achieve recognition by entering performance/composition competitions sponsored by the Music Teachers National Association. Competitions are available at the Elementary (compositions only) Junior, Senior, Young Artist and Chamber Music Categories. Teachers need not be an OMTA member, in which case there would be a $150.00 non-member fee.

These prestigious auditions are held at the state, division, and national levels. National winners receive cash prizes. All finalists receive travel grants.
