Music Olympics

Music Olympics 2022


The Gig Harbor Music Olympics is an annual local favorite musical event. For the first time, the Music Olympics will be accepting violin students to compete in this fun and inspiring event! This event is designed to encourage piano and violin students to develop well-rounded musicianship. Around 150 school-aged musicians from around the community will come together to showcase their skills in nine essential music disciplines (performance, theory, rhythm, scales, chords/string skills, arpeggios, sight-reading, listening, and speedy notes).

One of the greatest benefits of the Music Olympics is that students (and teachers!) can see their strengths and weaknesses -- and then work accordingly for the rest of the year! The focus of this event is not so much on competition as it is personal achievement and encouragement. Our goal is to send each student away with a greater love for making music than when they came!

Please note, because of the different requirements for the Virtual and Hybrid Music Olympics, restrictions regarding entering at the same level as last year are lifted. Under the teacher’s discretion, students may re-enter at the same level even if you won an award. Please carefully read the Guidelines for Levels on the Download Page.
