2016 6th-8th Grade Malcolm Music Contest

I am very proud of the band students that entered the Malcolm Music Contest. It takes a lot of work and courage to prepare a song and play in front of your peers, parents, strangers, and a judge. The students did very well. Most of the comments suggested by the judges for improvement were related to nervousness the day of the contest! Nevers can make it difficult to breathe properly, to move fingers/arms the ‘same’, to get your lips to ‘buzz’ on brass instruments, or just to concentrate on everything you’ve worked on! Keep playing everyone!
