hello, this is only for people in NY (unless other states have a similar program). The basis of the program is you select a solo, prepare it and the perform it in front of a judge (with sight reading and scales) and he/she gives you a grade on it. Just list the solo you are dong this year (if you are), or those of your students. Oh, also comment on the songs even if you haven't done a NYSSMA solo if you have played them before. NYSSMA: Level - 6 Piece - Concerto Composer/Arranger - Alexander Arutunian NYSSMA Jazz: Level - 5 Piece - Tunisia Composer/Arranger - Snidero, J. Book - Jazz Conception in a couple of months I will probably have audio clips of each for commenting. Peer commentation makes you better after all. UNRELATED: I also hope to get a small Jam Clip up to.
