The purpose of the Washington State Music Teachers Association Music Artistry Program (formerly Adjudications) is to:

  • Provide an educational experience which encourages goal-setting, persistence and creativity.

  • Provide a performance opportunity for students where an objective evaluation of the student’s skill and musicianship is made by an impartial, competent adjudicator.

  • Provide the teacher an opportunity to have feedback from another professional musician


Each student and ensemble will be given a written evaluation and oral comments from the adjudicator. WSMTA will present a certificate to each student participating. High School Credit students will receive a seal to be attached to their MAP Certificate, after performing two of the required memorized pieces. The MAP encourages and enlists parental interest and support, and provides a wholesome outlet for community pride.
