On May 2 and 3, 26 piano students from San Juan County gathered in Monticello to participate in the Utah Music Teacher’s Association (UMTA) Achievement in Music (AIM) evaluation program. 

During the program, students are tested and evaluated in Performance (performing two to three memorized pieces for a judge), Theory, Technique, Sight Reading, and Ear Training. 

There are ten levels of AIM. Students who consistently participate and complete Level 10, usually by their senior year in high school, are prepared to major in music programs at the college level should they choose to do so.  

The judge this year, Laurisa Cope, President of UMTA and piano instructor at Weber State University, was impressed with the quality of the performances of the San Juan students.

She complimented teachers Lorelei Andrews and Denise Frost on the students’ preparation.
