TIPS for making the video~~unless you own extra mikes or other equipment, use the camera on your phone.  Don’t place the phone directly on the piano.  Try to pick a time of day when the lighting is good, and try to include the torso, arms and hands, and keyboard in the frame.  Check that the background looks attractive and uncluttered.

Guidelines for student performers 


    1.  Memory is not required for solo or ensemble repertoire.

    2.  Repertoire should be standard classical literature and contemporary materials written for piano.  Use CM syllabus or CAPMT material as a guide.

    3.  Entry must be received on time.

    4.  Concert attire, please:  no shorts, jeans, athletic wear, mini-skirts, flip-flops!

    5.  Students, parents and teachers will be notified when the YouTube Watch Party will be online.  This will create the opportunity for friends and relatives all over the country (or the world?!) to be able to hear these great, hard-working performers.
