Choosing repertoire for competitions can be tricky, and requires a different criterion than choosing repertoire for auditions and juries/examinations. It is important to first understand the difference the requirements for competitions versus the requirements for auditions and juries. Where juries and auditions are geared towards evaluating the skills and technique or the student, competitions also look for the virtuosity and performance quality of the musician or student. The below article from the Music Lesson Resources website covers everything you need to know about choosing repertoire for competitions. Follow the link below:
On Sunday, March 24th, eight student musicians competed for a $250 scholarship at Note-worthy Experiences. Five of the musicians take lessons outside of Note-worthy Experiences.
Students performed on a variety of instruments including flute, trumpet, bassoon, cello and piano. Each student performed four pieces live in front of our panel of three judges. Our 2019 Live & Final Round of Judges were Daniel Beilman, Noah Dresser, and Matt Savage.
Prior to this final round, thirty students submitted two recorded pieces for our panel of judges to review. Our 2019 Recorded Round judges were Francois-Paul Aiche, Chris Oh, Maria Price and Renee Bordner.
Our 2019 Winner was Miss Ariel who performed on her flute.
