LMTA hosts a noncompetitive NMTA Lincoln District Festival at Nebraska Wesleyan University each year in spring. Students play memorized pieces for a rating and also take an ear training and theory test. Olympic type medals are awarded for a Superior (I) performance rating and an Honorary Theory Certificate for a theory/ear training grade of 90% or above. Students with a performance rating of Excellent (II) or better and a passing theory score advance to the NMTA State Festival level where they may earn a trophy. An Honors Recital is offered at the Lincoln District level for those who receive a I-, I or I+ performance rating.

Pre-college students may enter in the fields of piano, orchestra strings, voice, woodwinds, brass, percussion, plectrum guitar and classical guitar.
