Area piano students participated in the Kansas Music Teachers Association District 6 Music Progressions on Saturday at Bethel College in North Newton. The annual test is a tool to evaluate the progress of students, whether they study music as a hobby or wish to be professional musicians.
The event includes piano performance and tests of listening, keyboard theory, and written theory.
Piano teachers Carol Klingenberg of Peabody, and Sheila Litke and Beverly Richards of Hillsboro were involved. Litke was one of two adjudicators.
