Rally

In an effort to promote and encourage excellence in the field of music study, the Louisiana Music Teachers Association sponsors the Rally. The Rally serves as a growth process for students and teachers and provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their musical skills and knowledge. A planned curriculum of musical goals and activities has been designed to promote a comprehensive study of music at each level of the Rally.

The District Rally is a musical event consisting of four parts: (1) performance, (2) sight reading, (3) keyboard musicianship, and (4) written theory, history and ear training. A student must participate in all four parts in order to be eligible to receive an award. Awards are given to first, second and third place winners, and an Outstanding Achievement award will be given to each student who achieves the qualifying score. Except for Preparatory A, students from each district who achieve the required scores are eligible to enter the Torgrimson/Swanzy Competition for Outstanding Students.
