Congrats to my students who participated in the NFMC Scholarship Festival on 2/12/2011. Everyone performed admirably and received high marks. To be more specific all of my students scored Superior or Excellent.
The scholarship festival is judged much more strictly than the non-scholarship festival. A Superior is a marking from 95-100 and an Excellent is marked from 90-94. Each student receives a score from each of the 2 judges and those scores are averaged. No rounding is allowed. So if a student has a 95/94 split then the score is an Excellent. The competition this year was tough. There were some extremely talented high school students participating.
I would like to call special attention to 3 of my students. Minali is a senior this year and participated in the Musically Advanced I category where she received a Superior rating. Hannah and Lauren both added the Concerto division in addition to their solo playing. Hannah and Lauren both received Superiors for their efforts.
Thank you to all my students for all your hard work. Now back to practicing for NCMTA on March 5.
