    WELCOME

    Conceived in 1971, the North Shore Music Festival (NSMF) & Workshops has evolved into a friendly local festival, offering both Competitive and Non-competitive classes in Piano, Winds, Strings and Vocal. Classes are kept small, and time is allowed for adjudicators to address every entrant. Three Final Concerts are held, one for the Non-competitive section, and two for the Competitive Trophy winners. This educational project gives participants an opportunity to expand their musical studies beyond private lessons and examinations.

    ELIGIBILITY OF TEACHERS AND ENTRANTS

    Eligibility

    This festival is open to current members of the Registered Music Teachers Association (RMTA) and its Student Auxiliaries. North Shore Branch teachers may enter any of their students, regardless of domicile. RMTA teachers of other branches may enter only their students who reside on the North Shore. Festival entry is through the regular teacher, not via a consulting teacher or the students themselves. North Shore students of non-registered teachers may enter if they have entered the festival in previous years, provided they are sponsored by their previous teacher (who must still be a current North Shore branch member, and who will be responsible for keeping track of the trophies). A letter of confirmation by the sponsoring teacher is required. Please note: adjudicators may not enter their students the year they are adjudicating at the NSMF unless it is possible to schedule them with other adjudicators.

    Pre-school entrants

    A preschool-age student is any child too young to enter Elementary School Grade 1 at the beginning of the current academic year (year beginning last September). Amateur Status of Entrants

    Amateur refers to persons whose principle income does not come from musical services. Such a person may teach a limited number of students or perform in a limited capacity to raise funds for further musical study.

    Amateurs must be taking regular lessons in the discipline entered. Competitive classes are open to amateur performers only. Non-competitive classes are open to amateur students and non-amateur adults. For example, a teacher may wish to perform and receive an evaluation from an adjudicator in solo or ensemble pieces. Teacher Participation ***

    It is essential that North Shore Branch teachers be prepared to assist the Festival in the following two ways:

    Supervising

    Teachers are required to supervise as follows:

    Number of Entries Supervision Requirement 1-15 one session 16-50 two sessions 51-75 three sessions 76-100 four sessions

    With two or more sessions, one must be a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday afternoon or evening. On the Registration Forms indicate your preferred days and sessions for supervising, otherwise a time will be assigned. Non-branch members may pay an additional $5 per entry in lieu of supervising. Teachers who are unable to supervise as scheduled should notify Pat Holme at paholme@shaw.ca. If she is unable to find a substitute a $50 penalty will be charged to the teacher in question.

    Sorting ***

    Teacher help in sorting entries is vitally important to prevent errors. On t
