AMMA Diploma
(Jury) Program

AMMA juries are designed to help music students stay motivated and grow as a musician. Participants play against a standard of excellence and do not compete with others.  With 6 different levels for each instrument, the AMMA Jury Program offers a sequenced program for students from beginners to advanced players. This program inspires excellence and is a great way to receive assessment and feedback.
