PLEASE NOTE:

1. We don’t have repertoire requirements that means you can pick any piece on you own.  We suggested to pick more competitive music for Prodigy and Open categories.

2. Since there is time limits for each category the contestant can re-arrange the music to fit the time limit, or the judge will stop the contestant when the time is exceeded.  Judges should not pick any part to judge the contestants.

3.  We encourage all contestants to memorize their piece(s).  Contestant can play with music sheet if the contestant feels more comfortable, but there will be deduction for the grading.
