Young Performer Awards
YPA is back, by popular demand! Open to musicians of all ages and experience levels and modeled after prestigious regional and national competitions, the Young Performer Awards allow participants the opportunity to perform for an expert evaluator via a live, web-based video meeting using Skype. The evaluator will provide feedback and a series of ratings for each piece. Other optional elements will include the “Scale Olympics” technical trial (for pianists) and a Blue Ribbon Recital for the top performers in some regions.
Ribbons will be awarded based on aggregate performance ratings for each piece. Ratings will factor in the playing experience level of the participant, so even relatively inexperienced performers will have a chance to shine! Students of all experience and skill levels are strongly encouraged to participate.
YPA is open to the general public as well as Piano Lessons in Your Home clients for piano, guitar, violin, and voice. Adjudication will take place in early March 2019, with Blue Ribbon Recitals to follow (dates and locations TBA). Read on for more details!
