For students, parents, member music schools, music teachers and attendees that spend the weekend with us each Spring, they know how enjoyable and musical our Student Music Festival is. There are some tremendously talented student musicians who leave the audience wanting to hear more. For prospective member music schools, students and parents, here's what we think sets us above other student music exams, evaluations or auditions.
Music Schools & Private Music Teachers Benefit w/MAMTG
MAMTG's Student Music Festival is an event that adds great value for its member music schools and private music teachers. This Student Music Festival offers students a great performance opportunity and parents insight to a great music community of music teachers and musicians. MAMTG's Student Music Festival uniquely strengthens our music teaching industry and continues to place importance on the musical arts, music performance and the value a music education provides students of all ages.
MAMTG is a family-friendly student music festival. It's on a weekend, beginning on a Friday evening and ending on a Sunday evening. Performances and competitions are held theatre style in ballrooms and event spaces. Clinics, masterclasses and workshops may be available. Exhibitors/Vendors will be on site to learn from, purchase from and meet with. We care about this Student Music Festival. It's All About The Kids.
Festival '17 ★ Thank Yous
Hi Brandon, I have been meaning to email you since April to thank you for a great music festival! My students had a blast and I have recommended the festival to my supervisor for next year. I have recently taken a position back in my home state of MA, so I will not be around NJ next year... But I hope that my school [New Brunswick] will take advantage of the awesome opportunities the MAMTG has to offer. Thanks again and I hope you're having a wonderful summer! -Meg Roy
Hi Brandon, The festival is fabulous! I will be happy to share more later. Sitting at classical open intermediate (B). Sitting with parent who reports the first player presented a difficult, well-played 10 minute piece. The next one was very long again. She is wondering how the judge will be able to compare these to the shorter pieces. Perhaps the virtuoso category can be defined in part by length of piece for students/teachers to select that category instead. Thanks for your time and attention. -Colette
Hi Brandon! How are you? I have a quick question for you - my daughter competed for the first time over the weekend and we were unable to attend the awards ceremony on Sunday... It was a great first learning experience for her and we loved seeing all of the talent at each session! Thank you so much! -Erin
Thank you Brandon! So evident of your hard work! Detailed. A+ -Angela from The Music Den

Hi Brandon, I just wanted to thank you and the staff for putting the contest weekend together. I realize it is extremely time consuming and appreciate the hard work done by you and your staff. Looking forward to next year... Again thank you for all your hard work and sacrifice to make this happen. Sincerely, Kristen
Good job I was really impressed!! I can imagine the amount of work that you had to put into this with everyone. Now that we all know the drill I'm sure we will have triple the number of students next year... Mark from The Piano Workshop at Chester
Hi Brandon, Hope all is well and I hope you have recovered from last weekend's MAMTG. Congrats on another successful event! ...again, great job Brandon. Kudos to you and your team! -Lisa from Theater Steps
Hi Brandon! Hope things have settled down for you now that 2017 MAMTG is complete! Cornerstone Music Studios' faculty, staff and students had a wonderful time at the festival. Kudos to you and your team on a successful event! -JoAnn
