Scale Challenge
« on: January 12, 2018, 10:38:09 PM »
This is an idea of a friendly contest among pianostreet members which could take place in the audition room.

*** Scale Challenge ***

each month a scale is selected randomly. The participants upload a recording of themselves playing that scale. The recordings are being judged with different criteria (for example speed, clarity, evenness) by the participants (they can't vote for themselves) and the one with the highest score wins the challenge of the month.

Let me know what you think, if you have any suggestions and if you would be interested in participating.

My scales are as rough as a bear's backside. Speed's all right but clarity and evenness I find musically dull. However, if enough people enter I shall too in order to demonstrate what to avoid.
