1. All necessary forms are under the Music Artistry Program tab on the WSMTA website, under Programs for Students. The registration button is located on the member dashboard (which will appear after you log in) middle row, right side. 2. I would like to encourage you to print off and use the worksheet on the MAP page. This will eliminate a lot of mistakes in forgetting students, time or miscalculating. 3. Remember to register yourself! One of the biggest problems continues to be forgetting to register YOURSELF along with your students in the same transaction. 4. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DOUBLE CHECK YOUR CART BEFORE FINALIZING THE PAYMENT WHEN YOU REGISTER. One of the common mistakes has been entering students twice. Please double check the quantity next to each student name in the cart. Each student should only be there once, so there should be a quantity of 1 (not 2, 3, etc) next to each student entry. 5. I am happy to assist with any problems you might encounter, to the best of my ability. You can either email me at email@example.com or call (509-264-3770). Regarding the memorization requirement - memorization certificates are only for those students who memorized both pieces. Think of them like how we used the normal certificates in previous years. The secondary, non-memorized certificates are for any form of music use in the keyboard evaluation. Also, if a student plays with music, a second original copy needs to be presented to the visiting artist. We cannot use photocopies in any form without the proper authorization, and such situations are extremely rare Adjudicators for 2024
Contact your private teacher or Tacoma Chapter MAPs chairperson Oksansa Ejokino for more information.
