The Monroe County School Music Association is a cooperative organization supporting every music teacher in Monroe County.

We sponsor Solo Festivals for all grade levels in January, and Ensemble Festivals in March. MCSMA sponsors these festivals to enhance the school music experience for our most outstanding and committed student-musicians, so that they will bring to their home music ensembles the lessons they have learned and positively influence their district-wide music program.



New: All-County cut-off scores now available.


All-County Jazz Festival This weekend!

February 26-27, 2016 Spencerport HS

This year, we are excited to welcome Nathan Parker Smith (Senior High) and the Institute for Creative Music’s Chris Teal and Chris Ziemba (Junior High) as the MCSMA All-County Jazz directors. Smith recently debuted his Nathan Parker Smith Large Ensemble album, Not Dark Yet, which received instant critical acclaim and is nominated for a GRAMMY. Teal is a founding member and co-director of the Institute for Creative Music, and Ziemba maintains an active teaching and performing schedule in the New York area.
