Message from the MMAMTA Vice President
Dear all,
I am writing to let you about the upcoming Musicathon 2021, a fundraiser event organized by the Mid Missouri Area Music Teachers Association (MMAMTA). As the Vice President of MMAMTA, I would like to invite you to participate in this great community event!

The MMAMTA provides scholarships for young musicians in the Mid Missouri Area besides promoting an annual Concerto Competition, master-classes, and supporting local charities.
There are three main ways to get involved:
· By performing at the events
· By donating money
· By spreading the word about Musicathon 
The Musicathon this year will be different than it has been in the past due to COVID-19. Instead of a live performance, we will collect videos from students and teachers and stream them on YouTube on March 7th. The link for the video will be provided later via email.
Federation is asking students to submit their videos by February 24th, so you could use the same video to participate in Musicathon, in case you have a student doing Federation.
Here is how to submit your video:
Click on this link:
  1. Fill out the spreadsheet
  2. Upload your video in the folder named Videos
  3. Name your video following this format: Performers name-Title of the piece-Composer’s name (ex.: Renan Leme-Chaconne-J.S.Bach) 

The deadline to submit the video is February 28th. All music genres are welcome!
How to donate:
Write a check made out to MMAMTA
Mail it to:
c/o Renan Leme
2805 Wolf Creek Ct.
Columbia, MO, 65203
Please help us to spread the word by letting others learn about Musicathon!
If you have any questions you can address them to me via email: reisleme.renan@gmail.com
Thank you for your support!
Renan Leme
MMAMTA Vice President
