Recording Guidelines:

  • All recordings must be in VIDEO format, be uploaded to YouTube, and submitted via link in the Online Application Form.

  • Accompaniment is not required.

  • Each piece is to be recorded separately. Do not record all pieces together or join them together in 1 video.

  • Each piece is to be recorded in one continuous take from beginning to end.

  • There is to be absolutely no editing of any audio or video submitted in your application. Editing is defined as any alteration to the recorded performance from the first to the last note of each selection. (It is permitted and advisable to trim the beginning or end of each file, i.e. before the music begins or after it concludes.)

  • Recording must be recorded from a single position (i.e., no separate microphones for ambiance, etc). Video should also be recorded from a single, uninterrupted camera angle (no zooming, panning, or cuts.)

  • Dress in a conservative/professional manner, as visual impact is part of the overall presentation.

  • Candidate should be continuously visible throughout the entire performance.

  • No written signs, nametags or other written material visible in video entries.

  • Submissions should have audio and video properly synced. Out-of-sync audio and video may be considered grounds for disqualification.
