Student Activities

AMTA is pleased to announce the launch of our series of online recitals for the 2021-22 season.

AMTA’s next recital will be held on October 10 at Aurora Central Library. The program will be available for viewing on AMTA’s YouTube Channel within a week after the performance.
 To sign up to participate in the recital go to this link.
 

AMTA sponsors four student recitals throughout the year.  These recitals are designed to offer performance opportunities for the growth of our students and the enjoyment of their families.

This program is currently on hold due to the covid quarantine. Check back for more information soon.

AMTA ‘s Adult Student Potluck combines a relaxed recital experience along with the lively atmosphere of potluck dining.

Twice a year, the adult students gather on a Sunday afternoon where they may visit with other adult students, make new friends, and when they feel ready, may choose to perform.  Some less confident students may choose not to perform at all and that’s OK too.  Eventually, however, they may change their mind once others have taken to the spotlight, and find they enjoy performing. Whatever the outcome, this opportunity is for the adult student to enjoy performing among other adults, as children grades K-12 will not be in attendance.

Watch the 2022 Composition Festival on our YouTube Channel

Since 1993 AMTA Composition Festivals have provided students of AMTA teachers the opportunity to create, write, record, and perform their own compositions.  Each year’s recital is scheduled for the month of January.  Students may elect to enter the festival for critique only, and not play in the recital.

 AMTA is always proud of the students who take the extra time for this project, and display their music writing skills.  Each year a Colorado published composer critiques each composition with encouraging and informative comments.  Comment sheets are returned at the recital in January.

The deadline for entries is December 27, and the performance is slated for January 24th. The event will be live streamed on Zoom if at all possible, and otherwise it will be a streamed, pre-recorded event (more details as available). The cost per submission is $20.

Submissions must include an email with attached MP3 or MP4 recording or video of the student composition, plus an attached PDF of the score (hand written or computer generated notation accepted).

Achievement Day recognizes the musical achievement of students while providing a sense of accomplishment within a non-competitive environment.  Students perform two selections for a teacher-listener who ascertains that the student has met the requirements for their chosen level.  In addition to these songs, students complete a minimum of two optional activities, which may include a theory test, sight- reading, art project, original composition, and much more.

This ambitious project, based on Sergei Prokofiev’s Ivan and the Frog Princess, was conceived and directed by our own Grace Christus,  with original art creation and direction by Nancy Avalon, and brilliant performances by our AMTA students. The final beautifully impressive result can be viewed at our AMTA YouTube Channel.

Two times a year AMTA accepts scholarship applications from students of AMTA teachers.  If accepted, students may receive financial awards for such activities as state and national competitions, university tuition or books, summer camps, workshops, and more.
