REPERTOIRE:  Two contrasting pieces from different time periods (one from either Baroque or Classical period, the 2nd one should be either from Romantic or Modern period) for unaccompanied solo, or solo with accompaniment. Selection of the repertoire is at the discretion of the teacher. Students are required to perform only one movement of sonata/sonatina or concertos. Repeats will not be played unless the piece is very short or the repeats affect the integrity of the piece. Arrangements and transcriptions should only be used if no suitable age appropriate literature is available. No simplified arrangements will be accepted. It is the intention that the repertoire should be chosen from the solo literature for each respective instrument. Memorization is required.
