This past weekend, several of my students participated in the Spring Festival held at Oakton High School. Each student performed two selections: one piece chosen from a bulletin put out by the National Federation of Music Clubs, and another piece of their choice. Students performed for two judges and were given a rating of Superior (5 points), Excellent (4 points), Very Good (3 points), Good (2 points), or Fair (1 point).
Once a student has earned 15 points they are awarded a "15 point gold cup." Cups are awarded in increments of 15 points (15, 30, 45, etc.) per event.
Each student worked incredibly hard for this event and all received Superior ratings. Congratulations to all of you who participated this year. I'm so proud of you!
