Music Competitions

Musical America publishes an annual guide to competitions and music festivals that is fairly comprehensive and a good place to start. A word of caution: Shady competitions exist to make money off students and parents. The experience and involvement of your child’s SMS music teacher is crucial. They will be able to make the best recommendations for your student.
