: What I am suggesting is this:
: If an entire etude takes (for example) 2
: minutes to play at the slowest tempo, then
: allow each student the same amount of time
: to play that portion selected for
: district/region auditions.
: We won't be stopping the student from
: finishing; the clock will, along with their
: inability to play the etude.
: The Area auditions could be different since
: by that audition the students will know the
: Having to wait for a student to finish when
: they don't know the music is very time
: consuming and makes no sense.
: I suggest this for both high school and
: middle school.
