These are competitive classes for any instrument or voice in the jazz style, with or without accompaniment and with or without improvisation.
There are several special classes that jazz musicians may also wish to enter:
Performers aged 6 or under may wish to enter the Party Piece class.
More advanced performers may wish to enter the William Lewis Recital class. Entrants to this class should prepare a 15-minute recital of 2 or more contrasting pieces.
The Marian Baker memorial class is another recital class for which a minimum standard of Grade 6 on two contrasting pieces is required.
The Sproule class is for performers up to the age of 15. Competitors must perform a poem or an acted scene AND a song or a piece of music on any instrument.
Please note: previous winners of Special Awards may not enter on the same instrument in the same class in subsequent years.
