Solo and Ensemble Registration
Please read before registering:

As a student in the Frost Middle School Instrumental Music Program, your son/daughter will have many opportunities to perform this year. One opportunity is at Solo and Ensemble Festival at Franklin HS in Livonia. This event takes place once a year, Saturday, February 9th 2019. I encourage all students to consider participation in these events as they provide a wonderful opportunity for individual growth on their instruments.

Solo & Ensemble Festival is an opportunity for individual students to perform a classical selection of their choice for adjudication. Each student or group of students is evaluated by one judge and rated on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the highest rating possible. Along with a rating, students will receive valuable information on how to be a better musician and tips on improving their playing skills. Participating students that earn a rating of 1 or 2 at District will receive a medal. Students working with a private teacher, your private teacher should be able to pick out a piece for you, if you need help picking out music, see Mr. Rais.
Important guidelines in choosing music for Solo and Ensemble: (Mr. Rais can assist you in this process, we have a good sized Solo and Ensemble Sheet Music library).

 Music must be at least minimum 1 1/2 minutes in length
 Must provide an original copy for the judge to view
 Measures must be numbered (I recommend lightly in pencil)
 If solo calls for piano accompaniment, then soloist must play with a piano accompaniment! All pieces must be cleared with Mr. Rais. 99.99% of middle school solo repertoire requires a piano accompaniment!
 Music selection must be classical and published, NO movie or pop selections
 Absolutely NO forms will be accepted after Friday, October 26, this is time sensitive material.
 There will be many districts at this event from Saline, Dexter, Ann Arbor to Monroe to Redford. So rescheduling an event time will be difficult, please make sure you select a time frame that works for you.

You may pick music from our music library, or visit Cameron's Music, Marshall Music for band music,
Cameron's Music, Marshall Music, Shar Music for string music.
If you study privately with someone, your private teacher can pick your piece out as well.
*YOU MUST HAVE APPROVAL OF YOUR PIECE BY MR. RAIS or MR. HILL
