The New Hampshire Music Teachers first held the Granite State Solo Competitions in 1979.  This yearly competition rewards piano, woodwind, voice and string students for excellence in musical performance and provides incentive and encouragement for the serious student. 

The Granite State Competitions serve as a system for measuring achievement in music study through constructive criticism by experienced judges.  This opportunity contributes to the establishment of high standards in the art of teaching and performing.
