ISMTA Competition ISMTA sponsors competition for junior high and senior high students which culminate at the state level, and a state-level collegiate piano competition. There are cash awards for first place winners. Categories are: Elementary, High School Piano Duet, Junior, Senior, Collegiate, and Composition.
PAMTA’s Sonata/Sonatina competition is held biennially, in odd numbered years. This event seeks to promote an understanding of sonata allegro form, primarily developed in the Classical period (1750-1825).
Contestants perform a sonatina or sonata selected from a designated repertoire list.
First, second, and third place winners are selected from the field of entrants in each level and receive trophies, medallions and ribbons.
First place winners play in an honors recital which concludes the day’s events.
University Piano Camp Scholarship One student each from junior high and senior high levels are selected by a competition, held in February, to receive a piano camp scholarship. Only students of PAMTA teachers are eligible to compete, and must complete level 5 AIM theory for junior high and level 7 for senior high before being accepted for the competition.
