Congratulations to the following National and International Gold winners in the 2011 National Piano Guild Auditions. Every program presented was memorized, some consisted of Musicianship phases including Scales, Arpeggios, Chords/Cadences, Transposition, Ear Taining and Sight Reading. The youngest student who participated was Emma Erickson, at age 5, who started lessons in January. Everyone scored a minimum of 20 Commendations (Superior Rating), many scored above 28 Commendations (Superior Plus rating), with the highest score being 45 Commendations and 0 Attentions. I am very proud of everyone!
