This year's event will be virtual, due to lack of staff and the fact that our venue got cancelled, due to Covid.
Here's how it will work:
Videos (the students will perform their pieces on video for a judge) Due May 14th. Make sure if they are playing their pieces memorized, the music is not on the piano in front of them. We will have specific instructions for you on the website.
Scales, Theory tests, and other options will be graded by the teacher.
Here are a few ideas on how to do this:
1. If you want more of a hybrid event: Send in the videos, and schedule an "Achievement Day" at your home, for those who want an in-person event. I will be scheduling my students in 15 minute intervals on May 15th. One student can take a Theory test, while I grade the other student's scales, and other options in the studio. (Or schedule them farther apart for those who need more space).
2. Grade them during their lessons the week before the event.
3. Grade them during their lessons during the month of May (scales one week, Theory test the next week, etc.) This won't provide the same "test" feel as doing it all on one day, but provides a bit more flexibility for the teacher, and won't take up the entire lesson time.
*Registration is due by March 26th at the general meeting. All information will be updated on the website by March 15th.*
Please let me know if you have any questions!
