IMA Winners – 2017

The Illinois Music Association hosts a “music olympiad” every spring and Upbeat Music prepares and sends about 35 students to participate. Everyone is welcome to compete as there are many levels from very young beginners and adult beginners to advanced performers. We have sent piano, violin, guitar,drum, and voice students over the past several years.

Whether or not you should compete is up to each individual. Some people are motivated and really benefit from the practicing and preparation leading up to the competition and for them it is a great experience regardless of what place they come in. Of course everyone wants to win and some are disappointed when they leave without a trophy but the work that goes into preparing for the competition is where is the meaningful and long lasting benefits come from and these are lessons that can be applied to other areas of life.

Below are a few pictures of trophy winners from this year’s IMA competition.
