The regional branch of the South African Society of Music Teachers) SASMT has launched the brand new Mini Maestros music competition, which will be held in Uitenhage.

The competition is focused on music pupils between the ages of 5 and 13 year of age, who are in the beginner, initial and Grade 1 phases of musical tuition.

“Each participant will receive a certificate and a report sheet. The competition will steer away from distinguishing between winners and losers in determining medallists,” said Nicky Bosman, SASMT Secretary.

As the SASMT committee consists of music educators committed to the idea of music education as a holistic and ever- evolving process.

“The emphasis will, instead, lie on awarding particularly commendable performance aspects. Medals will therefore, for instance, be given for The Most Enjoyable Performance or The Best Stage Presence,” said Bosman.

)Admission is free and refreshments will be sold at the event. It will be held at Strelitzia High School in Uitenhage on Saturday, May 23rd from 09:00 onwards
