Music Artistry Program Requirements:

  • Teachers are required to be present for the entire session with the Visiting Artist and their students.
  • Teachers must submit scheduling needs to the chairperson at the time they register for MAP.
  • We encourage the teacher to communicate with the Visiting Artist as to what your hopes and/or expectations are for the session, before the session begins. In other words, if you have specific students with learning difficulties or if you hope for more constructive feedback with certain students, the teacher can let the Visiting Artist know.
  • Find more details on the WSMTA website - Find ‘Forms for Teachers’ to download. You’ll find the answers to most of your questions here. Please contact Patti Jamieson with any other questions.
