Summer Repertoire-Learning Contest!

All current students of mine at Sherwood or FaithSlaker Music:

I hope you're all having a great summer!  Care to show us all what you've accomplished?  I've given you all the skills you need; we've worked hard together during the school year; now you have the opportunity to show everyone what you can do on your own!

This contest is for the performance of a single piece (or portion of a piece) played by you on video with beauty and accuracy submitted by e-mail (mp4, youtube or vimeo).
Winners will be selected based on accomplishment within their playing level, musical expression and daring choice.

Entries must be received by midnight on August 31st and winners will be announced via e-mail by Labor Day.  The first place winner will be awarded a book of wonderful music to learn at the piano as well as a CD of inspiring piano music by great performers.  The second place winner will be awarded a collection of fun sheet music that we can work on together during the year.  

Now, head on over to the piano, warm up with your performance pieces, and see what you can do!  I look forward to watching all entries!

*Suzuki students:  Suzuki repertoire will not qualify.
