The Evaluation Festival is held annually in the spring. The Evaluation Festival is an event for members’ students to receive an evaluation on their performance abilities from keyboard professionals other than their teachers. Students are required to perform a scale and two memorized pieces of more traditional repertoire (no “pop” music) for a panel of three judges. The judges provide a written evaluation of their performance, and an appropriate ribbon to the rating is awarded to the student. Students are also rewarded for points accumulated over multiple years of participation. This is an event for students who have studied with their current member teacher for a minimum of 6 months at the time of the Festival.
Thank you to St. Paul United Methodist Church in Madeira for hosting our 2017 Evaluation Festival. We had over 80 students participate in this year’s event!
