MTNA National Student Competitions

The 3-tiered MTNA National Student Competitions in performance and composition are the most successful and prestigious student competitions in the country. Each year, thousands of students compete for top prizes and national recognition. These competitions recognize exceptionally talented young artists and their MTNA affiliated teachers in their pursuit of musical excellence.

The MTNA National Student Competitions begin with state level participation each fall. Winners from each state then compete virtually in a regional competition during January. Each regional winner then travels to the MTNA national conference in March to compete live for a national title.
