Achievement in Music Piano Festival ~ South Bend Area Music Teachers Association

On Saturday, November 10th, over 100 piano students from throughout Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan participated in the Achievement in Music Festival held at Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana.  This non-competitive adjudication involves taking a written and aural music theory test, playing scales & other keyboard skills, sightreading, and a performance for a judge of two prepared pieces, at least one of which is memorized. 

This was my first year serving on the committee that puts together the festival, and there is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes, along with everything the students and their teachers do to prepare their performances.

Three students from my piano studio participated this year. 
  • Camille A
  • Claire C
  • Greta C
On their theory tests, there were two 100% and one 96%.  All three students received and "Excellent" rating ~ the highest available ~ on their repertoire performance.  I'm very proud of the extra work they put in preparing for the festival and for their achievements!
