Student Composition Contest

Composition is an important part of our teaching at NSMS. Each year, we hold a themed composition contest. Students submit a video/audio recording of their composition, and then winners are selected for each level. The winners then have the opportunity to perform their compositions on our Student Recital Series in May.

Our 2021 Contest Is Now Open!

This year's theme is Pictures, Poetry, and Places. Click below to submit your entry by April 30th.
