TMTA North & North West branches invites all instrumental and vocal students of TMTA members to participate in an afternoon of music making and performances at the 2023 TMTA Music Awards. 

A friendly and supportive environment, the TMTA Music Awards is a great opportunity for students to perform to a small audience and share in live performances together. Musician and educator, Kim Waldock will provide feedback and adjudicate the awards in three sections on the day:

  • Mme. Helen George Awards (Grades 3-5)
  • Ann McGarry Award (Grade 6-8)
  • Graeme Buchanan Award (Diploma)

Students need not have completed an exam to participate in the sections/awards. A copy of the music should be provided for the adjudicator on the day and entry forms must be received prior to the performance day.

Venue operators and TMTA volunteers will observe Covid Plans to promote the safety and wellness of all attendees. 

Audience entry is $10 per adult (children are free) or $20 per group. Student etry fees are $5 student (Prelim-Grade2), and (Grade 3 and above) $10 student, to be paid to their teacher by the due date.

In addition to the three Awards above, additional awards are announced for each grade level.

Entries close Sunday 15th October and must be emailed to Gail Tivendale.
