Fletcher's Pianos and Organs at the Arnot Mall, hosted their annual Piano Showcase competition on Saturday, April 3, 2004. Contestants competed before a panel of three local adjudicators.
Each participant performed two memorized pieces from the "Celebration Series® - The Piano Odyssey®" One piece was pre-determined, and the other they personally choose from the same album.
The top 20% of the students received a trophy and medals were awarded to others for a commendable performance (above 80-85%). All students received a certificate.
STUDENTS, PLEASE NOTE: Before going to this event, we discussed that you are judged on a scale of 1 to 5 in several categories. It was agreed by all that a "3" would be average . . . acceptable, though not the kind of performance that would be required to place well in a competition of this nature. Someone who scored an average of 3 in each category would receive a total score of 60%. Sound bad? Nope! Remember, we call it "average . . . acceptable". As one student put it, "Just keep me above the 50s . . . "
Be happy folks! We did well. :-)
