Thank you to all parents and students for participating. The level playing was very high and the judge enjoyed the performances. She heard 159 pieces. Each student performed scales and cadences; all National and International winners performed scales, chords/cadences and arpeggios. Play Piano In All Keys Complete Workbook was very helpful in preparing the musicianship phases. Besides the complete set of fingering charts, the book also features practice logs. Some of my students used the practice logs and kept track of their progress using the metronome. They often practiced scales for 3 minutes, sometimes 5 or more minutes without stopping and their technique became more fluid.
Bret Paddock performed the entire Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue. He is looking forward to auditioning with an orchestra.
