Advice to performers

        We prefer you to play a non-examination piece, but you may play an examination piece
        if  you have nothing else ready to perform.  Please note you may play only one piece per instrument (rule 8).

        Woodwind or brass players should warm up outside the hall a few minutes ahead of their
        performance. 

        If you are a string, woodwind or brass player, please check your tuning before you go on
        stage, and then tune with the piano before you start to perform. This will not be counted as
        part of your performance time.

        Please don’t wear your school uniform!

        Please bow to the audience after your performance.

Teachers and Parents/Guardians:

       Please read the rules of the competition very carefully, particularly with regard to
       accompanists (Rule 9) and music copies (Rules 13 and 14), and also help to make sure
       that time limits are respected.
