Hillsborough County Secondary Music Council


Master Musician

The Master Musician Program is designed to encourage talented music students to continue their progress beyond the classroom setting. This program gives students an opportunity to receive district level recognition, achieve their highest musical potential, and develop a professional portfolio which can be used as an indicator of achievement for college auditions, admissions, and scholarships.

The Master Musician Program consists of two sections, a performance portfolio and the Master Musician Aptitude Test. There are district dates in which the tests are held and portfolios are due. The list of appropriate directors and testing sites are listed below.
