The Indiana Music Teachers Association Achievement in Music program continues to be very strong, with six festivals around the state serving over 700 students each year. In an effort to keep this program serving the needs of all teachers and students, IMTA will be updating the syllabus for release in 2015.
Currently, we are using the syllabus which was first published in 2005. There have been no changes to this syllabus since that date. In 2010, the Board of Directors reaffirmed the use of this syllabus for the period 2010-2015. If you own a syllabus dated 2005-2010, or a syllabus dated 2010-2015, you own the current syllabus.
The current Board of Directors has authorized the formation of a committee to oversee the upcoming revision process. Many of our members have made helpful suggestions over the years concerning possible changes they would like to see in the syllabus. As AIM Coordinator, Douglas Sperry has maintained records of all suggestions for consideration in our review of the syllabus. At this time, he would like to encourage all who participate in the AIM program to submit any additional suggestions they might have to either to him or their festival coordinator.
In addition, if you have a desire to serve on the committee which will conduct the syllabus revisions, please contact Doug at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. We will begin our work later in the summer of 2013.
