Other Performance Opportunities

There are many other festivals and competitions open to Gwinnett County Association members’ students. Below is a list of some of those opportunities.

If you would like an event to be listed here, please contact our webmaster.

Bach Competition

This competition is held every other year and is a unique outlet for exceptional young musicians of beginning to advanced levels to play Bach repertoire, which is often ignored in most of the competitions. Students from all independent teacher’s studios of piano, flute, voice, harp and strings may enter the competition through their own private teachers. Click here for further information.  Since it is sponsored by North DeKalb Music Teachers, all students of North DeKalb Music Teachers Association will have $5 registration discount. Nonetheless, all teachers are welcome to enter their students for this competition.

Teachers may download the complete repertoire lists, registration forms, the judge’s comment sheet, and the directions to GSU audition site at http://www.ndmta.net/events/2016-bach-competition/

Young Performers Concert

Each year the Atlanta Music Club’s Young Performers program arranges four live recital venues where local music students benefit from the experience of performing before a live audience. We encourage local music teachers to apply their students for these recitals. High school students and younger are welcome to apply.

Students should be prepared to play one piece only with total performance time limited to 4 minutes per student for beginner’s to lower intermediate repertoire and 6 minutes for upper intermediate to advanced repertoire. Memorization is required.

Each music teacher may send one to three students of varying levels of performance per concert. This is a recital of Atlanta’s finest students for a very appreciative audience. Click here for further information.

SAS Pianofest

PianoFest is a festival for piano students grades K-12 designed to promote a sense of individual accomplishment. Employing the use of outside evaluators we strive to create a competitive atmosphere embellished by personal achievement. In order to maintain the highest level of musical integrity our judges are carefully selected from the faculty of local colleges. In keeping with our high standards we require all students to memorize their solo pieces for PianoFest.
