My Student Won State Composition Competition
I am happy to announce that my student Calvin Brey has won KMTA State Composition Competition in Elementary group! He already won this competition last year and we decided to try it again. We have received excellent comments for Calvin's "Five Possibilities" from the judge Dr. Steve Rouse. According to his comments this piece has "very good use of energy flow and contrasting areas of rhythmic diversity and variety; the melody is memorable and catchy; harmony is very adventures and interesting; the form is excellent". Now we are waiting for the results from Eastern Division Composition Competition to became a finalist of the National one. Wish us luck!
