It is time to recognize some recent student achievements. On October 29, twenty-eight students from the studio took the Texas Music Teachers Association Student Affiliate Theory Test. Music theory is analogous to engineering. An engineer knows how to take iron, cement, glass, pipe, steel and wood to create a building. Likewise, a student who understands music theory is able to take apart the elements of music and re-assemble them in their performance.  

The good news - all 28 of my students passed the Theory Test!  Some had scores worthy of medals.

Students earning a gold medal (scores 98 - 101):

  • Sam L, 1st grade
  • Katie Lynn E, 2nd grade
  • Aidan N, 2nd grade
  • Nirvan S, 2nd grade
  • Lily K, 3rd grade
  • LiLian D, 4th grade
  • Fletcher K, 4th grade
  • Brianna V, 5th grade
  • Katie N, 7th grade
  • Ryan D, 8th grade
  • Amber M, 9th grade

Students earning a silver medal (scores 94-97):

  • Maheera D, 3rd grade
  • Pablo R, 5th grade
  • Thomas L, 6th grade
  • Faith T, 8th grade

Students earning a bronze medal (scores 90-93):

  • Nanditha S, 3rd grade
  • Daniel R, 4th grade
  • Lily V, 5th grade
  • Samuel X, 6th grade
  • Yang V, 7th grade
  • Alex B, 8th grade
  • Santiago R, 9th grade

Congratulations to these students!
