The 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.
Students receive a written evaluation of their performance and a grade on their written theory test. Certificates and ribbons are awarded to the students to indicate their accomplishments. Plaques are awarded to those students successfully completing the Elementary Division 4A and the Intermediate Division 8A. Trophies are awarded to students successfully completing the Advanced Division 12A. (To qualify for these awards, the repertoire, technique and theory must be completed at the same level in the same year). James Anthony Scholarships are also awarded to high school seniors who successfully complete level 12A. Upon completing 12 college music credits as a music major at a college or university, a James Anthony recipient may apply for the Arnold Bullock Scholarship.
