We love MTNA and all it offers teachers and students (see our posts about MTNA here and here). I shared with you awhile back about the new MTNA eFestival (read that post here). So today, I wanted to give you a little update! MTNA found a new way for videos to be submitted that drastically reduces the entry fee from $60 to $25. This is a significant drop, and makes the eFestival a valuable resource at an accessible price. To participate in the eFestival, students simply record up to 15 minutes of playing and upload the videos for an evaluator to see. Students receive feedback within 7-10 days. If you have students preparing for auditions, live festivals, or competitions, this is a great way to aid their preparation. You can learn all the details about the eFestival here:
