KSM & AGM


I’m Tracey King, founder and director of King School of Music, and my history with American Guild of Music (AGM) has been quite an adventure!  I began AGM participation with students in 1991, and joined the Board of Directors in 2002.   My students have repeatedly won NAICs and All-Around Awards in Voice and Piano.  My personal credentials include:  Bachelor of Arts in Music (Cleveland State University/Spring Arbor University, 1980); Forty-three years of teaching privately (piano/vocal); and founder of King School of Music (27 years in 2017).

I have served as: Recording Secretary from 2002- 2010; Treasurer 2009-2014; Co-Secretary (communications) 2010-2016; and President from 2016 to present.  I have had the privilege of creating the first Vocal test list with assistance from my former student Adriane Galea who subsequently became a board member, along with updating the piano and vocal sight-reading test lists, etc.   I accompany (and occasionally direct) the National Convention Choir.

I have enjoyed presenting awards and watching the excited faces of young students as they proudly collect them!  I have seen the confidence and joys that the AGM competition instills in my students.  I also cherish the friendships made at competitions with fellow teachers and their students, and the lifelong friends I have made with other board members!  I believe that AGM is a great experience for all!
