MAME is a Local Association of the Wisconsin Music Teachers’ Association and our members are entitled to participate in every WMTA offering. Each Spring WMTA offers auditions in 14 different areas throughout the state. These are open to every MAME teacher and their students. For students of all instruments, from grades 1-12 and adults, these auditions give an opportunity to play memorized pieces for an adjudicator and receive written comments for the student and teacher to review. (There are also options that allow students to perform with their music.) The student also takes a Music Theory Test that is appropriate for their age and skill level. Students earn points for both of these activities which accumulate from year to year, resulting in incentive awards for continued improvement. All teachers who enter students in District Auditions are expected to work a shift (or send a sub to work) on the Auditions Day. The event is also a prerequisite for participation in the WMTA Badger Competition. For more information on district auditions or Badger State, visit the WMTA website.

District Auditions will be held March 8, 2020 at UW-School of Music.

Deadline to enter is February 10, 2020.
