Piano Solo Novice

The Piano Solo Novice category is for competitors who are new to competing or who are not seeking a heavily competitive category. This is an opportunity for all students to experience performing in a competitive environment. Beginner through intermediate level pianists are encouraged to participate. If you are a beginner to competing, this may be the category for you.

If you are seeking a more competitive experience, please join our Piano Solo Competition found here.

We are so excited to have you join us with your concerto performance. Please see the rules and regulations below.
