A10/23/2016Fall Recital - There were four recitals with a great variety of student's ages and skill levels.  The recitals consisted of piano solos, duets, duos, and original compositions.  At the end of each recital the students gathered onstage for photos.  It was a delightful afternoon of music making! Thirty students from five different studios performed at this event. Patti Miller chaired this event.1090

B11/12/2016This year's 10th annual Celebration Series:  Classical Festival 2016 - This year's auditions were held in the home of Karen Greenhalgh, NCTM on November 12th.  Jodie Jensen, NCTM and Mary Beth Shaffer, NCTM, adjudicated the event and held the students to high standards.  Students received feedback on their playing and a rating of either 3=Good, 2=Excellent, or 1=Superior.  Forty-eight students from 10 participating teachers performed in the festival. Twenty-four students received superior ratings and were invited to perform in the Honors Recital.  All of the students were well-prepared and played fabulous auditions--Jodie and Mary Beth remarked on how very well-prepared EVERY student was. Students were awarded medals for earning a '2 or 3' and trophies for a '1' superior.   Participating teachers brought a pot luck lunch for the judges on the audition day. Kellie Johannik chaired this event with assistance from Joyce Li. Two Honors Recitals were held at Classic Pianos on November 13th featuring twenty-four students. These festival "honors" recitals were professional and the playing exquisite.

CDecember first week 2016Holiday on the Keys at Starbucks - Preparation began in August -- deciding on which dates and collaborating with Starbucks on logistics. In September the assistant manager at Starbucks (Wadsworth and Bowles) put us on the calendar for the first weekend of December. Pianos n Pianos was contacted and Ken Trujillo, owner, graciously agreed to provide the grand piano again for this event. Signups started in October with Sign-Up Genius developed by event chairs and continued right up until the event. Over the four days--Fri/Sat/ Sun/Mon--Holiday music was played by students decked out in holiday attire. The students performed piano solos, duets, trios, and sang holiday songs to the customer and employees' delight. Students and their families truly enjoy the relaxed holiday music-making and this event gives CMTA visibility in the community. Posters advertising the local association and Pianos n Pianos are on display. New members often join CMTA after discovering us at Starbucks... just one of the many perks of this event. Nicholle Leafblad and Shirley McMeeking were the chairs.15approx. 100

2. Special Services to/for Teachers
71
Do you have teacher grants available?  MTNA great source.
72
Explanation:
73
Last year our specified grant writer, Dr. Vasana K. DeMel, and Karen Greenhalgh, NCTM, president made a grant application to the CSMTA matching grant. The association received $300 from CSMTA and CMTA matched that grant for two iPads to be rotated through teacher studios to acquaint the membership with this technology. We bought the iPads and began our project of introducing the iPad and apps to our association teachers.

76
3. TechnologyDo you encourage your teachers to work with technology?
77
Explanation:
78
CMTA is a local association striving to become user friendly with technology. We used our new iPads to acquaint members with various apps which can be used in the studio to supplement student lesson time. Many of our members have attended special technology presentations, i.e.Leila Viss/the iPad Studio, Shana Kirk/using the iPad in your studio, and Lori Frazer/Clavinova. Carol DuBe, our newsletter chair, updates us monthly on recent online blogs and interesting articles from noteworthy websites. We are becoming more aware of global technological possiblities. Members have become familiar with such web hosts as Philip Johnston, Wendy Stevens, Diane Hidy, Leila Viss, Andrea and Trevor Dow, etc. and we look forward to continuing to expand our technological knowledge over this next year. Vasana DeMel and Sue Parker had managed the checking-out of our iPads.

4. Professional reading Education program (PREP) Group:
81
Does your local association have a PREP study group? If yes, what is the format?
82
Explanation:
83
Arlyce Black hosts the PRP study groups in her home. She has done this for many years. She offers her home to other local association members as well as to Columbine members at theses get-togethers. CMTA members are given the PRP reading list at the beginning of the year and asked to look at each selection ahead of the meeting date. All members are encouraged to attend (even if they have not read the book).
84
85
86
87
Explanation:
88
Because the Columbine MTA is a small local association we realize the extreme importance of valuing every member's contribution. Twenty out of thirty-three members have signed on for leadership positions for 2016-17. That is approximately 60% of our membership.
89
90
91
C. COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT (activities with other groups; music advocacy, etc.)
92
1. Music Advocacy (anything your group does to raise awareness of music programs)
93
94
CMTA prints a publicity brochure which is distributed by the members to prospective members, music stores, and bulletin boards throughout the community. This brochure contains information about the CMTA leadership, meeting topics, meeting sites, along with contact information. We recognize that we need to become more visible to our Columbine community and partner with our local school communities. One of our members teaches in the music classroom and I am a retired public school music teacher so we understand the need to connect with that venue. CMTA is aware that continued communication is necessary to raise music program awareness. We are currently brainstorming ways in which we can better partner with those music resources.
95
96
2. Community Service (food drives, students perform at mall, meetings open to public)
97
We have not had a food drive or students playing for charitable giving; but our Holiday on the Keys at Starbucks might be a good place to start. We have awarded scholarships for a worthy Columbine MTA student at the Festival for Creative Pianists for the last two years.
98
Explanation:
99
For the past two years CMTA has sponsored an Award of one-hundred dollars to the Festival for Creative Pianists sponsored by member, Evelyn Billberg, and Dr. Arthur Houle. This festival takes place at the Wash Park Center for Music and Arts in Denver in June 2016 and 2017. Our Student Awards Committee continues to approve scholarships for CMTA students to attend the Festival for Creative Pianists.
