Piano Auditions

Brief Overview

  • Levels 1-10

  • Two Solo Pieces - one piece from the Syllabus, one Student's Choice piece (memorization required for both)

  • One Accompanied Piece (piano duet/4 hands or piano duo): memorization not required

Piano Auditions provide an opportunity for piano students of all ages, including college students and adult students, to perform solo and accompanied music at the Chapter or District Level.

This event is designed to encourage and motivate students through the evaluation of prepared solo and accompanied literature  from the CAPMT Piano Auditions Repertoire List.  Students are rated 1–5 (5 being the best), with those receiving a 5 being invited (but not required) to perform at the CAPMT Northern Festival or CAPMT Southern Festival.
