General Video Guidelines:

 

TECHNICAL TIPS:

 

PLEASE do not use external microphones. Try to get as close-up as possible on video recordings. Try to frame the shot from the waist up, with not too much empty space above the head in frame. Also try to raise the video source closer to eye level so that the judges can see you more face to face, rather than looking up at you. Film in landscape/horizontal frame. Record ONE selection in its entirety. 

Accompaniment options:Live piano accompaniment. Accompanist App or other online piano accompaniments are acceptable too.

 

* we accept phone, video or zoom video recordings. You do not have to film a studio based video.
