Student Achievement Testing
Ann Arbor Area Piano Teachers Guild
The Student Achievement Test is an opportunity for students provided by MMTA and its local chapters. The program promotes comprehensive musicianship, helping students and teachers to set goals and measure progress across their years of study. It is available to Michigan students K through 12 studying with an MMTA member teacher.
The SAT consists of five major parts: a performance portion (representing 72% of a student’s score) plus theory, sight reading, technique and aural skills. Students can enter at any level from the beginners’ Level I to the highly advanced Level X. Above Level III, students who score high enough may also enter the SAT competition phase which consists of a semi-finals and finals.
Dedicated MMTA members plus our own certified adjudicators make this test available in locations throughout the state of Michigan (normally in late February or early March). Every effort has been made to make this program as inexpensive and widely accessible as possible. (Student Registration Fee) The fee for registering students for testing through AAAPTG is $30.00 for Levels I-V and $35.00 for levels VI-X. The test will be administered on Feb. 24, 2018 at the Music Department of EMU University.
