+ DETAILS

Baroque music style is fundamentally good for finger technique, aural skills, and reading skills due to contrapuntal nature of the music. Baroque music encourages creativity with ornamentation and works muscle memory. Competitors will perform a blind audition to focus on the music and not appearance. The judge will work from a rubric, which will rate accuracy, rhythm, correct style, expressiveness, and creativity for each performer. Grand prize winner of either the Junior or Senior Category will be $200, and the 1st place winners from each category will receive $100.
