For Performers (Please read the Performance Tips page on the ACMA website):
? What is the climax (high point) of your piece? Every musical and dramatic work takes its audience on a journey, generally consisting of the following elements:
o Introduction and elaboration: The central melodic theme is introduced and often repeated, in identical fashion or with variation.
o Climax: The highest emotional point of the work, usually occurring 2/3 to ? into the piece. Requires maximum expression and melodic emphasis to evoke a desired reaction or response from the audience. Also considered a reward point, or ?tension release? for the audience.
o Resolution: The conclusion of the piece, during which all unresolved musical elements are resolved in a decisive manner.
? Entertain your audience: Great entertainers (actors, singers, etc.) put their unique personality into every performance. If you want to make a memorable impression upon your audience, introduce a new, unique perspective on your piece. Once you truly ?own? your piece, it should carry the inimitable stamp of your personality, but also sound as if it is being performed for the first time.
? Select pieces that are personally meaningful to you, and allow for your maximum expression as a performer and entertainer.
? If you wish to ?warm up? before the meeting, I will open the hall at approximately 3:30 p.m. Please be mindful of your fellow performers, and limit your piano practice time to 3 minutes.
? Performances do not have to be memorized, or note-perfect. However, as a courtesy to your audience, please present a work that you have studied attentively, and can play to its completion.
? If you make a mistake during your performance, please continue to play without stopping. Apologizing, repeating a previously played section, or stopping will only call more attention to your mistake.
If you have any questions, please e-mail or call me at[masked]-8565.
