Monitor Preference:  due to the large number of monitors needed for this event all teachers with student registrations are expected to monitor. Exemptions are NOT applicable for this event.

SA ENROLLMENT REQUIRED:     Your must enroll your student in TMTA Student Affiliate at  www.tmta.org.  This is required for all students taking the theory test.

ADMTA local SA membership dues and submission deadlines are listed in our yearbook and online.    For questions about SA enrollment email studentaffiliate@admta.org

Non ADMTA member teachers’ students: Eligibility for TMTA Student Affiliate Events is determined by the state. As a local association we have deadlines and local fees for event registration. Non-members should email for further instructions at least one week before the local deadline listed for the event registration. ADMTA charges an additional processing fee per student for TMTA member teachers who are not members of ADMTA.  Please also check the TMTA Handbook for state-associated fees and deadlines.

THEORY Fees for Changes/Corrections: Late registrations after the two-day grace period are not accepted. Changes or corrections for registered student’s name, spelling of name, grade level, test level, etc. after the theory registration deadline and grace period will be charged a $15.00 processing fee per student. If changes/corrections to test level are AFTER the tests have been ordered, there is no guarantee they can be accommodated. Please notify the theory chair as soon as you discover an error since this can be time sensitive to get updated information to state.


There are no make-ups for theory tests in the fall or the spring. Teachers should plan carefully whether their students will test in the Fall or in the Spring.

The only exception may be if the student is involved in a TMTA or MTNA event that falls on the theory testing date.  Contact the theory chair  before the registration deadline should this occur. Please be aware that there are NO guarantees in this case that a make-up can be scheduled due to the complexities of facilities, state deadlines, etc.

Students who are working toward 12-year awards should take advantage of the Fall Theory test to make sure they retain their eligibility for those awards.


If a student is testing from another association the teacher should read the testing out of association instructions carefully.  Students registered with ADMTA for SA Enrollment who chose to test in another TMTA district must also register with ADMTA and pay the ADMTA $20.00 registration fee to cover the cost of testing, medals and test record processing.


All rules and guidelines for the theory tests are made by the TMTA. Read the TMTA HANDBOOK at www.tmta.org for complete information. 

  • There is NEW INFORMATION in the TMTA handbook on medal eligibility for vocalist and instrumentalist testing in levels 4 – 12 Pianists who begin their studies late may be considered instrumentalists with the same guidelines. PLEASE read the current TMTA handbook carefully found at www.tmta.org. 
  • No student will be allowed to take a test above the current school grade level. Such tests will be considered ineligible and will be returned to the local chair.

  • Students who skip a school grade or who are promoted during the year will be required to take the test at BOTH grade levels for medal and award eligibility. They may test one grade level in the fall and one in the spring. The local chair must notify both the TMTA Theory Coordinator and the TMTA office in order for the record to reflect both grades.
  • Students who repeat a grade must test no higher than their current school grade, even if it means passing a test previously taken and passed. The student will be eligible to earn a medal if the score is 90 or above.
