Syllabus is a music curriculum that covers technique, music theory, sight reading, rhythm reading, and repertoire. The ten levels of Syllabus are graduated in difficulty and challenge students to achieve musical goals. After completion of a level, students can opt to be assessed by a master teacher who provides a helpful critique.

Questions? Parents, please contact your OMTA teacher. Teachers, please contact your district chair. District chairs may reach out to Heidi Evans, NCTM with questions.
