Every year a local association audition is held for piano students in grades 4-11 who wish to compete in the Georgia Music Teachers Association state auditions. The winners selected from this local audition may go on to compete in the regional-level held throughout Georgia. Piano High School Seniors, Vocalists, instrumentalists (other than pianists), students taking the GMTA Theory Achievement Test, piano concerto applicants, and all college-level competitors do not participate in local association auditions but enter directly at the state level. There is a $20 local audition fee for students and no fee for teachers.
Participation requirement for local auditions: Teachers must participate in at least three AMTA- sponsored events during the academic year in order to qualify as a member entering students in local auditions. These events include the three business meetings, the Fall Workshop, the Sonata/Sonatina Festival, the AMTA Festival, the AMTA Master Class, the Fall Recital and the Honors Recital.
