The Louisiana Music Teachers Association established the LMTA Keyboard Olympics in 2019 under the leadership of President Pamela Pike (2017-19). Constructed similarly to the LMTA Rally Syllabus, the Olympics Syllabus provides a sequential curriculum to guide teachers and students in the study of the creative and improvisatory genres of music. Special gratitude is extended to the creators of the LMTA Keyboard Olympics: Chairperson Patti Misita, Carla Breaux, David Easley, Dr. Pamela Pike, and Sue Steck-Turner.

Chair: Pamela Pike, NCTM |
