The Young Artist Guild is a group of the most gifted musicians in the Certificate of Merit® program. Acceptance to YAG is one of the highest honors for Certificate of Merit® students.

Students who meet the eligibility requirements applicable to each Instrument category, will apply for two rounds of auditions. Selected students will be inducted at the MTAC StateConvention. This concert serves as a debut for newly selected members and as a venue for current members to perform.

An accepted student is granted membership in the Guild for five years upon recommendation by a panel of adjudicators. During this five-year tenure, the student member may be offered semi-professional paid performance opportunities through MTAC branch-sponsored concerts.
