I am very excited and happy to announce the winners of Claudia’s School of Music E contest. Thirteen contestants will be receiving Certificates of Achievement and Amazon Gift Cards. We received over 70 submissions from students aged 4 to 16. Winners were selected based on evaluations from three independent judges in the areas of tone quality, rhythm, technique and interpretation. The contestants were categorized by age and type of performance (solo /duet/ ensembles).
The goal of our E contest was to encourage young musicians to grow and develop confidence in a competitive setting. We hope that this contest has helped our students to more fully realize their potential as they strived for their best.
