Solo & Ensemble Festival Music

2018

 

There are different Levels of Difficulty (Level 1 easiest, Level 2 Medium Difficulty, Level 3 More Difficult)  in each category :

  1. Beginner-first year student

  2. Intermediate-second year student

  3. Advanced-third year and above


Students can earn more points if they choose a higher level piece BUT they must execute well to earn those points. Students should pick a song they are comfortable with.Teachers can make suggestions.


New This year

This year we have some new solo pieces for beginners, intermediate and advanced students that have CD accompaniment.  This allows the student to hear the piece and play along with the melody. When performing, the student is asked to play the piece without the accompanied melody, just the accompaniment only. We will have the accompaniment Cd in the room that they will be judged.
