Piano Performance Festival is an adjudicated, non-competitive event for students

NCMTA Performance Festival – Piano

A Valuable Opportunity for Students

The purpose of the NCMTA Piano Performance Festival (PPF) is to provide students ages elementary through high school, and their teachers, a valuable performance opportunity. It is a means of receiving constructive feedback from competent judges, thereby stimulating and recognizing constant growth. The NCMTA Performance Festival is non-competitive, meaning, students are not judged against others, but instead are adjudicated on their own merits.
