NYSSMA Information

NYSSMA stands for New York State School Music Association. Each year, NYSSMA provides all music students the opportunity to prepare a solo and perform it at the annual spring festival to receive adjudicated feedback from a New York State music- certified judge. Performing at the solo festival then opens up the opportunities for students to audition and/or qualify for such festivals as All County, Area All State, and All State in Rochester.

If you would like your child to take advantage of participating in NYSSMA, please keep a look out for information from and/or contact your school music teacher. Only the school music teacher (not a private instructor) may register students for NYSSMA.
