Student Day is one of the best structured and comprehensive music evaluation programs in existence. And, it gives students a great sense of accomplishment. Please begin preparing your students now to enter Student Day!
Student Day has three main areas of testing:
1. The Performance Audition: Takes place before one adjudicator who gives constructive criticism on
2 to 3 pieces, depending on the level;
technique: scales, arpeggios and other skills;
keyboard theory, harmonization and transposition;
musicianship and sight reading (one bonus point for the latter)
2. Written Theory Exam
Students in Levels 1 through 12 take their written examinations in an assigned area. They work at their own pace and may leave as soon as they have finished.
The Honors Recital is set for Sunday, April 23, 2023 at 3:00pm at the UNF School of Music Fine Arts Recital Hall (Room 1200).
Concert dress code
We want to make the Honors Recital as special as possible. Please inform your students and parents of it now, so they can look forward to being invited to perform. Any student who receives an Honors in Performance with at least an Achievement in Written and Aural Theory is will be invited to perform. There will be a formal printed program and certificates handed out to participants.
