Music Festivals


The Music Festival is a noncompetitive festival sponsored by the Wichita Falls Music Teachers Association to encourage memorization and performance of quality piano and string literature.

Who may enter:  The Festival is open to piano and string students of teachers in Wichita Falls and  surrounding areas.

Repertoire requirements:

Piano Students:
*May enter one or two memorized pieces.
*Exception: Sonata/Sonatina pieces up to three movements.
*Ensemble duets – four hands, one piano. Two students (not teacher and students) May use music if needed.
String Students:

Performance time should not exceed a total of five minutes.  If more time is needed, a double fee should be paid.

Before the festival:  Teachers must enroll students as a group.  Fees are not refundable and must be included with the registration.  The teacher should send one check made payable to the Wichita Falls Music Teachers Association (WFMTA).  Teachers will be notified about the scheduled time for the group.  Teachers should copy the evaluation sheet, complete one  for each of their students, and bring it with them to the Festival.

On the Festival Day: 

  • Students should bring music with them.  No Xerox copies are permitted.
  • Teachers should sign in at the registration desk and receive their students’ name tags and ribbons.
  • Students will meet their teacher in the “gathering area” to wait until called by a monitor to go to the playing area.
  • There will NOT be an opportunity to use the practice rooms.  Encourage your students to warm up before arriving.
  • Each student will play privately for a single judge.  Teachers, parents, and friends may not be in the room.
  • Every student will receive a rating card and ribbon.
