This event created an exciting and stimulating atmosphere for young musicians to perform in front of jury and other participants and a possibility to get a gold trophy or medals. I would like to thank the adjudicator Jullian Hellaby and Liz Giannopoulos, the director of this competition.
My students acknowledged that receiving a prize at the competition was even more rewarding than getting certification from an exam board. Both the participants and those who came to support their students were encouraged to develop their skills. I was particularly pleased that every student heard the feedback on their performance.
This competition started only 2 years ago and it has a promising future.
