WHY ENTER AN EISTEDDFOD?
Irrespective of students’ aims in music the experience of performing in public is vital. This builds confidence, and above all, the chance to experience the enjoyment and excitement of performing.
Every competitor receives the assessment of an accomplished and independent adjudicator. Try out and improve your programs for exams such as AMEB, ABRSM or Trinity, and Secondary and Tertiary Level Assessments.
Many aspiring professionals fail to show their best at auditions and miss study or job opportunities. The answer is practice and the conditions at the Eisteddfod competitions are ideal for this purpose.
The finals of the advanced competitions are held in prestigious venues. Several musical organisations look for their soloists at the Eisteddfod competitions.
Valuable Prizes and Recognition
Prizes include certificates, vouchers, medallions, cash and a major scholarship. All are evidence of achievements to enhance CVs.
