From the KMTA Music Progressions Website:
Music Progressions is designed to be a suggested curriculum of independent music study. This curriculum is coupled with an annual evaluation sponsored by KMTA local associations and/or groups of KMTA teachers.
This noncompetitive program consists of ten progressive levels. Each level requires proficiency in performance, music terminology, rhythm and pulse development, sight-playing, scales, written theory, and ear-training. Students may enter any level. Participation is not based on year in school or years of music study. The test provides a music event evaluating the progressive growth of ALL students – those studying music as a hobby as well as those aspiring to enter the music world professionally.
Many teachers find that they are already teaching the concepts contained in the curriculum. Music Progressions simply keeps the teacher and student accountable for learning the concepts in a progressive and timely manner. Music Progressions provides valuable feedback for teachers, students, and parents through a written evaluation and individual scores in each area. Students also receive a certificate of participation.
Music Progressions typically takes place in Derby one Saturday in April.
