Student Day

FLORIDA STATE MUSIC TEACHERS ASSOCIATION
DISTRICT VI STUDENT DAY

FSMTA provides for non-competitive performance, written theory, and aural theory evaluations through its highly acclaimed Student Day Program.  The program encompasses Levels Primary through Twelve, without age restrictions, in all instruments and voice.

Students are awarded FSMTA Certificates of Achievement or Certificates of Progress. Other awards are given for scoring HONORS, for 5 years of participation, and  for scoring the highest score at the highest level in aural and written theory.

A student may enter at the level the teacher feels is appropriate. After completing Level VI, a student may participate in the dual track program by choosing the Theory track OR the Performance track OR continue with both.  A special Honors Recital for students scoring passing grades in both written and aural theory and all HONORS in performance  concludes the Student Day experience.

The FSMTA Student Activities Handbook  gives specific requirements and samples of tests. The entire FSMTA Student Activities Handbook may be accessed  by going to
