MTNA national Competitions

The MTNA National Competitions provide opportunities for serious musicians in junior high, high school, and college/university to compete at a national level. Competitions are held at the state level first. Hawaii State winners move on to the video-only Southwest Division Competition. Division winners are invited to compete at the live Final Round at the MTNA National Conference (March 21-25, 2020 in Chicago, IL). HMTA is proud to offer recording and financial assistance to our local students who advance to the Division and National competitions.
