MMEA Music Lists

The Maryland Music Educators Association (MMEA) maintains lists of graded music for District and State Festivals and Solo and Ensemble Adjudication. The lists are available here as searchable Excel files. (Use the arrows to access the dropdown menu for the filters.) For District Band, Chorus and Orchestra Festival Assessments, only the Maryland State literature lists for Band, Chorus and Orchestra may be used. For District and State Wind and Percussion, String, and Vocal Solo and Ensemble Festivals, only the Maryland lists may be used with two exceptions: harp solos and guitar solos. Harp and guitar solos may be selected from the NYSSMA Manual published during the past 10 years (2007 and forward). Guitar ensemble music must be selected from the Guitar Ensemble List posted on this page. Teachers may check with their county music office to review the lists, if the office has purchased a copy. To order a NYSSMA Manual, visit and select Manual.

Guitar solos may be chosen from the NYSSMA list
