My daughter participated in the MAMTG... While she did not win anything we felt the feedback from the judges was invaluable. I was wondering if it is possible that we could have the judges information... She was in musical theater showcase. ...I was hoping to schedule an evaluation or possibly lessons. Thank you... - Lisa P.
What we are aiming to achieve with MAMTG's Student Music Festival is value with a community of professionals. The music teaching and music education community needs its teachers, music schools, students and parents to come together and embrace the value of a music education.
MAMTG's Student Music Festival provides a weekend filled with music competitions, evaluations or assessments, talent showcases and ensemble showcases. It's a weekend where a family can stay at the hotel, participate in several events, watch other performance events and support students in their performance, have meals together, go for a swim and end the weekend at the Sunday Awards Show.
Bringing music schools, their teachers, students and parents together for a weekend is an enriching opportunity. The value students gain by performing for an evaluation or in a competition is far beyond simply playing and practicing in a classroom. Being with a community of others offers students insight and inspiration to go back home and keep improving, practicing and aiming for the next level in their own playing.
Parents can rest easy, in that the adjudicators judging the events and providing feedback on the scorecards are honestly the very best we can find and secure for the weekend. We turn away several applicant adjudicators who simply are not qualified for our Festival. New adjudicators are oriented by staff prior to the Festival beginning. The standards are set high for the adjudicators.
For private music teachers and music schools. The quote above says it all. Being with MAMTG adds value to your school, studio, music store or organization. There are many competitions and offerings out there, we receive a lot of them here in East Brunswick. However, MAMTG offers an experience and an event like no other. We put far too much time and energy on producing the very best student music festival we can. We work all year long on a 3-day event.
Consider elevating your music education experience, either for your students, your child or your organization. It's easy to participate and the weekend offers a nice Spring break away.
