What is NYSSMA and why is it so important?
Every spring, the New Your State School Music Association (NYSSMA) sponsors events throughout the state, featuring solo and ensemble festivals. The festival gives students the opportunity to perform a solo or with an ensemble in front of a judge to be graded on several different aspects of music and performance.  This affords the opportunity for the students to not only see what areas may need improvement; it also gets them in the habit of being judged for future auditions for things like college.

One result of doing well at a NYSSMA solo is the opportunity for being selected for placement in advanced performance groups like;  All-District, All-County and All-State.

NYSSMA is for instrumental and vocal students.  

Catalano Music carries the largest selection of in stock NYSSMA music and related material in the tri-state area.  The music is organized, cross referenced and cataloged as it appears in the NYSSMA manual for easy reference.  Whether you are a teacher or a student, you can browse from a wide variety of classical and jazz titles collections.
