Competition

Share Your Music With The World.

Show Off Your Skills, Get Valuable Performance Experience,
and Compete With Your Friends.

Let me ask you this:

 

What’s the point of spending hours upon hours in the practice room if you never perform?

 

It would be like spending years in medical school to become a doctor – and then never treating a single patient!

 

The whole purpose of investing all that time working on your musicianship is to share your music – and the enjoyment it brings – with others.

 

Performance is a skill in itself… and the only way to improve at it is to do it!

Join our online competition for performers of all ages and musical styles where you can showcase your skills to your friends and family.

 

Simply register below, record & upload your video performance, and share it with your friends to get votes. Those with the most votes will win prizes!

The PERFORM competition is a low-pressure way to face your anxieties and fears around performing. It gives you a way to dip your toes into performance without performing live on stage right off the bat:

 

  • Competing with a recorded video performance means there’s less pressure, because you can record multiple takes until you get one you’re happy with.
  • You don’t have to deal with the crowd staring at you in the moment.
  • It’s a middle ground between practicing in private and performing live & in person.
