NVMTA supports the use of published musical scores. If a photocopy must be used, the NVMTA Copyright Release Form, signed by a parent or teacher, must be submitted to the chairman by email or postmarked at least one week prior to the event. Please submit this form also for music purchased or downloaded from the internet. Students using photocopies (or anything resembling a photocopy) either for themselves or the judges, without having provided the Copyright Release Form by this deadline, may play for comments but will not be eligible to compete.
Flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, or recorder students may enter. No previous first place winners may compete again in the same division, but with the chairman’s consent, they may compete at a higher level. Students must be taught lessons in person in Northern Virginia.
Students must provide their own accompanist.
Please provide one published score with all measures numbered, and which must not bear the student’s or teacher’s name.
Teachers must agree to abide by the Rules for Competitive Events
In the noncompetitive section, students will receive comments and a rating, but no ranking, from at least two judges. In the competitive section, all performers will receive a certificate of participation.
There will be no Concerto Winners Recital in 2017.
