CMM's 21st Non-Competitive Festival
Saturday & Sunday
9th & 10th April 2022
The CMM Non-Competitive Festival is, along with our commitment to excellence in teaching, an extremely important and essential component of the CMM mission and commitment to parents and students. As is the case with examinations at the end of a school year, it is the one event near the end of the school term which motivates students to achieve a higher standard of performance and it is the one time when parents can appreciate the value of their investment in their childrens musical training. It is also the event which gives parents the opportunity to benefit from the experience of observing the musical achievements of their own child and other children.
The focus of CMMs Non-Competitive Festival is on the experience of performing in a non-competitive environment. The adjudicator assigns no rankings but gives immediate feedback which reinforces what is taught in class, while providing positive feedback for the students or ensembles performance. All performers will receive a remark sheet and a certificate that commemorate their experience at the Festival.
ELIGIBILITY: Participants must be students of CMM. Since this is not a
competition, there are no age limit or previous study
OPEN SESSIONS: Performers play in front of the other class members, as
well as in front of an audience. Generally the audience are
family members, friends and CMM teachers. There is no
on-the-door admission charge to the Festival.
