100-Day Challenge: Print out a certificate for your students who complete the challenge.pdf
The completed practice sheets continue to pour in. If you haven't tried this with your students, you can still start now. As one teacher said, "The 100 days of practicing has inspired my students to more than I thought each was capable!"
We will continue this challenge in the upcoming year, and students may start at any time. Check out the students who have played for 100 days at http://www.instrumentalistmagazine.com/100%20day%20challenge.php
Composition Contest- Last chance - Deadline March 14
It is time for the annual composition contest. Each year students create their own pieces based on the theme. Small monetary prizes are given and the winning pieces are printed in the magazine. Even if students have never composed previously, we encourage them to try. Composing will give them a greater knowledge and understanding of how music is put together and encourages their creativity and expressiveness. Judging is based on creativity, originality, and connection to the theme - not on how difficult the music is. Full contest rules may be found here.
