APPLYING TO JOIN
Q: Is there a form to me to fill?
A: Yes. The form is only available online. The link is at the main page under PACKAGE –FESTIVAL PACKAGE 2019 tab.
Q: Why is there the need to send in the video link?
A: The link sent through YouTube or YouKu helps us determine the level of proficiency for us to eventually deliver the appropriate lesson plan for you (where applicable).
Q: Is there a minimum requirement to take part in the festival.
A: Yes there is. However this is not measured by any qualifications to determine if an individual would or would not be accepted. The selection committee views each application on its merits and factors such as interest to pursue music, enthusiasm towards music and competency of the instrument are some of the multi factors under considerations. The selection committee decision is final.
Q: We applied for the festival and were approved. What do we do next?
A: Upon approval, you will receive an email confirmation of the approval and you would be required to make a balance payment of all fees within 14 days. The selection committee reserves the right to disqualify the application should the full fees are not received within reasonable time. There would be no refund of the registration fees.
Q: I received an email that rejected my application to join the festival. Why?
A: We are sorry that it has happened this way. We wish to assure you that it is not because you aren’t good but it could be due to reasons from the stringent criteria we wish to uphold or just simply the fact that the festival is over subscribed.
However you could still be part of the festival by purchasing the Observation Pass and it entitle you to join all the Masterclasses, festival concerts, lecture-performances and the Gala Concert on the final evening. By joining these programs it would also inspire you and offer you a wider perspective in music making.
