Past Sight-Reading Books

District Sight-Reading books from past MPAs are available for $2/each at your District’s spring membership meeting. These can be a valuable resource for sight-reading practice in class. Books can also be ordered by contacting FVA State Office.

State MPA

High school entries that receive a rating of superior at districts are qualified to apply for State MPA. At this event, students are evaluated by a highly select panel of adjudicators at a state level adjudication.
