How Do I Sign Up?

MACCC college faculty members should sign up to get online access and information for student registration. Only one faculty sponsor per school and students may NOT sign up individually.  Information will be sent to MACCC faculty only. 

    Instructors only (not students) should contact Dr. Momilani Ramstrum ( with instructor name, email and school (Only one contact per school).

    How does it work?

    There is a weekly music theory tournament that is accessed online. All problems are randomly generated and automatically corrected. In each weeks competition quiz, there will be sections covering music theory and ear training topics such as key signatures, scales, rhythm, intervals, note reading, chords, melodic dictation, rhythmic dictation and Roman numerals.

    Students compete in two areas: speed and number of correct problems answered. Students can repeat the quizzes as many times as they choose, until the competition closes each week (Thursday evening at midnight), improving their speed and adding to their number of problems answered correctly. At the end of the qualifying rounds students will see their cumulative total and average speed. Winners are calculated automatically, so students will know their standing as soon as the qualifying rounds close.
