Frequently Asked Questions

Can a student enter the same category with 2 different pieces?

Yes, as long as the pieces fit within the time limit and are the same music category.

Can we request a specific competition time?

No. In order to be fair to all competitors, time requests cannot be accommodated. If we accept one request, we must accept all.

Does each music category require an addition fee for the same student?

Yes. If a student is playing more than one music category, a separate fee applies for each one.

When we will receive the schedule for the performance day/time?

The SPC will publish the competition schedule by Sunday, October 14. You will receive an email link to the schedule. See “General Info”

How long after the performance before the score card is available?

Score cards will be ready within 10 – 15 minutes of the student performance.

We have to leave right away – how will we know who wins?

Winners will be posted on the SPC website within 30 – 60 minutes of the close of the age bracket/music category.

What if a winner is unable to attend the Awards Ceremony?

Winners will still “win”, but trophies and cash awards will not be mailed and special arrangements will need to be made for pick up.
