Record and upload seperate videos of you playing "Disney's Magical Marches" and "Main Street America" from memory. You should film so that it is obvious that you are not looking at the music (e.g., eyes closed or no music in sight).  You will be evaluated on the accuracy of your pitches and rhythms, as well as dynamics, articulations and phrasing.  Do not be overly concerned about the tone of your instrument due to the limitation of the microphone on your phone, tablet, or computer.


You may play along with a metronome or a recording of the music, if you wish.


Videos must be uploaded by the 3pm on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.
