Each CAMTA member may sponsor up to fifteen piano solo students or five piano duos of high school age and younger.
Participants perform on video two contrasting movements of (the same) sonatina (exemptions for one-movement
sonatinas; Scarlatti Sonatas are counted as sonatinas) or one movement of a sonata. The videos will be judged by one adjudicator. Top scores will be recognized with
medals for their achievements.
Students receiving the highest honor, a gold medal, will be featured in the Gold Medal Recital.
Payment has to be made immediately with the applications.
Solo sonatinas and sonatas have to be performed memorized. Four-hand and two-piano duo repertoire does not have to be memorized.
VIDEO AND SCORE SUBMISSION GENERAL PROCESS
When teachers register their students, an e-mail will be sent to the provided parent e-mail address with information on where to upload the video
and score. PLEASE NOTE: We have been getting student registrations without teacher registrations and vice versa. The Google Drive invite
and e-mail instructions will not be sent until both registrations are received!
The parent will need a Google account or create one in order to upload materials. They may also need a Google Drive app depending on the device.
One unedited video of the performance must be uploaded. Two movements of a sonatina must be recorded on a single video.
The participant's body, hands, keyboard, and pedals should be showing at all times.
The participant (or parent if the student is young) must announce their issued student ID before the performance. They can use an index card with the ID written out
to do this.
A score of the music being performed with measures numbered must be scanned and uploaded as well.
Once uploaded, the video and score should be checked to make sure they have been uploaded correctly. CAMTA is not responsible for problems with the submitted video
To finalize submission, the parent must respond to the e-mail to let us know. No changes are allowed once this e-mail is sent.
Unfortunately, CAMTA is unable to provide technical assistance with any of the above steps.
All parties understand that videos earning Gold Medal awards will be published to a private YouTube channel for anyone with a link to watch.
