Arizona Study Program

ASU Music Building

Arizona Study Program is a twelve-year graded course of study developed by the Arizona State Music Teachers Association to provide for the development of musical performance, technique, and theory. It is organized in terms of the twelve years of public school, with one level available for each of the years a student would be enrolled in school. It requires continual work throughout the year. Each spring, students are evaluated on repertoire and technique requirements by a master adjudicator and are required to complete a written theory test.
