If you're new to Metro Music Makers, or you have a student who has never participated in the Junior Festival with us before, you're probably wondering what all the fuss is about. This guide contains everything you need to know and a few bonus tips for making sure your student has an excellent experience.
Metro Music Makers was honored to host another NFMC Junior Festival this year for our students. This event offers students a chance to be evaluated by judges in a noncompetitive environment. Each student must memorize and perform two pieces, one of which must be chosen from the official NFMC (National Federation of Music Clubs) bulletin. The pieces in the bulletin are all written by American composers, so this exposes our students to modern American composers, as well as giving them a low-pressure audition experience.
