July 2020 – National Piano Guild Auditions were held virtually for the first time ever in over 100 years of auditions. Congratulations to over 90 of our students that participated in the auditions and received great piano report cards! Winners ranged from Local to International, and eight students were selected for Top-Talent Rating in the National Auditions. Areas of testing in the auditions include musicianship phases such as scales, arpeggios, improvisation, sightreading and ear training. Programs included repertoire ranging from Baroque to Classical to Jazz and Contemporary. Even a pandemic couldn’t stop our students from rising to the top in their piano studies!
