I will say of the Lord , “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Psalms 91:2 NKJV

Four students of the Zion Piano Studio participated in the 2021 Spring Theory TMTA Theory Examination coordinated by the Fort Worth Music Teachers Association. Janea G. (Level 4), Saifullah B. (Level 7), Sameer B. (Level 8), and Adil B. (Level 11) took their examinations from February 7th-21st, 2021. Due to Covid-19 protocols, students took their examinations in our studio or at their homes. We expect to receive their test results by the end of the Spring.  

The purpose of the Theory Test is to evaluate SA members’ musical knowledge of and the ability to apply theory, aural, and musicianship concepts across a broad musical spectrum. The Whitlock Theory Tests are named in honor of Dr. E. Clyde Whitlock. Dr. Whitlock is remembered for being a charter member of TMTA, a distinguished music educator, and adjudicator. Each year the TMTA Theory Committee prepares tests for levels 1-12. Students enrolled in school grades 1-12 may take these tests in the fall or spring. Local Associations administer the tests in a professional atmosphere. The Student Affiliate Theory Syllabus and Student Manual specifies the content of the tests.

The Zion Piano Studio is a Christian piano academy in Benbrook, Texas. We offer private lessons in piano, music theory, and music history. We recommend products and resources for students and teachers. We support the City of Benbrook and foster Christianity worldwide through several Christian organizations and outreach programs.
