For the Satori competition, we have been very lucky to have a judging pool composed of some of the best educators and musicians around the world. Every year, our judging team is alternated from this pool to maintain fairness and consistency. So, to continue providing this excellent judging service while upholding values of fairness, we would like to expand our pool of judges. If you are passionate about music and interested in participating in judging for our event, please contact our Chief Judge Ms. Lu OuYang at luouyang20@gmail.com for further details!
