Alberta Registered Music Teachers' Association
Lethbridge Branch 

Lethbridge Branch of ARMTA Biennial Practise-a-thon:

Each year the Lethbridge branch of the Alberta Registered Music Teachers' Association awards over $1500 to those students studying with current members who have achieved the highest first-class honors marks in practical and theory examinations for the previous year.  In addition we sponsor 2 annual piano awards for the Lethbridge and District Music and Speech Arts Festival.  Our branch feels it is important to recognize the success and hard work of students and to encourage them to continue their studies.

To raise money for our awards program, the Lethbridge Registered Music Teachers’ Association sponsors a Practise-a-thon every two years. The last one occurred in February of 2017. Students set practise goals with their teachers, solicit pledges and then attempt to reach their practise time goals and win prizes. Prizes, including gift cards and concert tickets donated by our community sponsors, are awarded for the most hours practiced in 4 age categories as well as for the most money raised.

100% of the money raised through the practise-a-thon goes directly to the Registered Music Teachers’ awards program and is given to future award winners.

The Lethbridge Registered Music Teachers' Association is grateful to the following sponsors for their generous support of the Practise-a-thon through donation of prizes:

  • Long & McQuade
  • The Music Court
  • The Lethbridge Symphony Association
  • The Lethbridge Community Band Society
  • University of Lethbridge Music Department
  • CFMTA (Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Associations)
