We Had So Much Fun Last Time, We Are Doing it Again!
We are so happy to announce another online piano competition! We had so much fun with the last one so when Steinway Artist Louis Landon told me he would be open to judging a song writers competition, I got to work right away! Louis has an album called Thanksgiving that is on heavy repeat over here so make sure to check that out as well.
This competition will be a little different and less formal from the last one we did. Here are the guidelines:
- Constant must submit one video of them playing an original piece of music by Midnight PST November 24th. Make sure to have plenty of lighting, phone horizontal and don get it too close to the piano to avoid peaking or distortion of sound. Click here to watch a video we made for the previous competition on how to shoot your video. Please send submissions to ThanksgivingComp1@gmail.com by midnight November 24th.
- Piece of music must be original
- Make sure to include your name, the name of the piece you recorded as well as your general location (city, state)
- By submitting your video, you agree to us posting your video on our YouTube Channel
