The Music Performance Assessment (MPA) is one of the best ways to raise the standards of musicianship in middle school and high school orchestras around the state of Florida. The Florida Orchestra Association, Incorporated, along with the Florida School Music Association, provides Music Performance Assessment opportunities in which the students can hear other orchestras, receive constructive comments, and be rewarded for their accomplishments and efforts. It is the belief of the Florida Orchestra Association, Incorporated that our growth as individuals is defined in terms of our ability to develop thinking capacities, motor skills, and affective response. Music is unique in that it has the potential to develop people in all three areas, fostering performance skills, musical creativity, and musical response.
