State Music Repertoire Lists

MMEA maintains graded repertoire lists for Band (MBDA), Chorus (MCEA), and Orchestra (MODA). The lists include solo/small ensembles (brass, woodwinds, percussion, all vocals, all strings, guitar) and Large Ensembles. We do not keep a list for piano.

We are pleased to announce that we now have a repertoire list for Harp, both pedal and lever, curated by the MODA Harp Representative. This new list is linked below.

The review committees for each component are composed of an appointed chair and no less than four (4) additional member educators.
MMEA members only are welcome to submit to the approved repertoire lists. We accept submissions for inclusion, grade level change, removal, and clarification. 

MMEA is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive community in which people of all backgrounds are treated fairly. We celebrate the creativity, unique strengths, and talents of all musicians, while ensuring outreach to individuals and communities that are underrepresented in music education. Each component’s committee is composed of a diverse group of educators from across the state. We treat all participants equitably and provide consistent, clear, bias-free, and transparent standards in our repertoire list selections. 

Note to Composers: MMEA will only accept compositions from MMEA members. Composers are welcome to work with any of their MMEA educator contacts to request a piece be considered for inclusion.
