Each year, MMEA provides composition assessment and feedback through its Call for Compositions. The Call for Compositions is not a competition, but rather an opportunity for students to receive personal feedback about their compositions. The compositions are reviewed by a panel of professional musicians, and each student receives a written evaluation of their piece, along with a score and rating. Adjudicators highlight strong points and make positive suggestions for future growth.
The Young Composers Project eligibility rules are as follows:
Young Composers is open to all Maryland students enrolled in music classes/lessons, grades PK-12.
Each student must have their music educator certify eligibility.
Music educators do not need to be member of MMEA/NAfME in order to participate.
Submissions open on December 1, 2021 and close on April 1, 2022 at 11:59pm each academic year.
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
