To do all this well requires a village of dedicated people. Professional and committed people. Thank you to Theater Steps, Elisa Girlando Studios, Raritan Music Center and Music Notes Academy for being involved throughout the year. These school owners, directors and staff teachers all provide their expertise, insights and time to help improve each upcoming Festival for all the attending schools and students. These are our Leading Member Schools. As always, the invitation is open for more schools to become a Leading Member School.
Thank you to all the adjudicators/judges and room captains. It takes tremendous amounts of time seeking, interviewing and securing the very best, dedicated, degreed and experienced adjudicators who share a similar vision and are committed to an event such as MAMTG. This year, I do believe we had the very best group of adjudicators ever. I'm very proud of Festival '19's group of adjudicators and room captains. Thank you Lisa from Theater Steps, for taking the reins and leading all the adjudicators in our Festival meeting and orientation, while being there additionally for everyone throughout the weekend.
Thank You to the sponsors, who provide their resources to help make MAMTG what it is today. PianoPiano NYC, Music Notes Academy, State Theatre NJ, Theater Steps, Elisa Girlando Studios and Idol Time Vocal Academy. Thank you Paiste Cymbals for sending swag for the performing percussion students.
Thank you PianoPiano NYC for being very prepared, dedicated and simply wonderful. Thank you for the Young Chang baby grand piano for the Awards Show. All the pianos were excellent.
Thank You to the attending exhibitors who attended with vendor booths. State Theatre NJ, G Star Creations, Tune Your Piano!, PianoPiano NYC, Musically Inclined, David Enterprises, Cornerstone Music Studios, Freehold Music Center, AoPS Academy of Princeton, VisoVita Media and KiDzHub. This fine group of small businesses and professionals help make the weekend brighter for everyone in attendance. Having exhibitors brings more professionals together and helps the the music education community network and become a bit stronger because of it.
Thank You Stephanie Tsai, our assistant program director. Stephanie helps me throughout the year administratively and throughout the entire five days we are at the venue. From assisting with event scheduling, adjudicator schedules, room captain schedules, banquets/catering and more.
Thank You Victor Tsai, our computer guru who designed a new system and process for additional accuracy in scorecard calculations and computations which helps produce the Awards Show more efficiently.
Thank you attending member schools and private teachers. It's been my hope that you see MAMTG's Student Music Festival as a value-add for your music school, studio, students and parents. Having an exciting event for your students, that offers constructive feedback from specialist adjudicators on scorecards that align to a specific event, hopefully helps you as a music teacher and your students improve with insight from another professional who cares about music education while promoting the musical arts for students.
Finally, thank you students and parents for performing and attending. I really do hope the weekend was enjoyable, educational and musical for you and your family.
