American Guild of Music Competition

American Guild of Music Competition at Expressions Music Academy


Every April and July, Expressions Music Academy sends some of its students to the American Guild of Music (AGM) competition. AGM is an organization which provides motivational performance opportunities to its members through music competitions. Each contest is structured to be a positive experience, so that every student has a chance to succeed no matter what his or her ability or how long they have studied their instrument. You can learn more about the organization at their website:

Expressions Music Academy is a member of the AGM which gives all of our instructors the opportunity to send students to competition events each year. In the past, our students have come back not only with trophies, but also inspired and motivated to practice harder for next year!

Our experience with AGM has truly been exceptional and we offer this as an option to all our private students each year. The Great Lakes Regional competition is held in April each year, usually at the Westin Hotel at the Metro Detroit Airport. The national competition is held in July each year at varying locations.

This competition opportunity is by no means required for students here! We offer it simply as another option to help motivate and inspire our students. We encourage you to speak with our staff or your own instructor for further information.
