AiM Examinations


The Illinois State Music Teachers Association has developed a nationally recognized curriculum called the Achievement in Music program (“AiM”) that focuses on comprehensive musicianship skills for students of piano, organ, voice, and strings.   As students progress from beginning through advanced levels, they receive a rich training in performance and music theory.  Yearly AiM examinations conducted by local MTA chapters such as GRMTA give students the incentive to set goals and experience the rewards of musical accomplishment.
