Achievement Day is a non-competitive student event run by Local Associations in Colorado, following guidelines created at the State level. Most Local Associations in Colorado offer Achievement Day at different times of the year.
During Achievement Day, students are asked to perform two pieces in front of an adjudicator who writes comments. Additionally, students are required to complete a minimum of two additional "options." Options include theory, signs & terms, history, scales, arpeggios, chords, sight-reading, written projects, art projects, etc.
Participating students receive a Certificate of Completion signed by the CSMTA President.
