The New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) sponsors an annual festival where students play a prepared piece and receive a rating. NYSSMA levels range from 1 to 6, with level six being the most difficult. Many students start this evaluation process in fifth or sixth grade. For each NYSSMA level the music is more demanding and students are judged on every aspect of performance including tone quality, technique, musicianship, interpretation, musicality, dynamics and sight-reading ability. When students reach tenth grade, they become eligible to compete for the All-State and All-National audition if they have achieved outstanding proficiency on Level Six music literature. The competition is very rigorous because students from across every county of New York State compete against each other.
