The purpose of this competition is to use students' imagination to create a story based on the research. Then become the composer, presenting and performing as the composer.
The score reflected 70% of the presentation and 30% of the performance.
In the presentation, we saw how the students researched, how creatively the story was made,what costume they wore to express the composer well, and what accents and gestures they used to act more realistically.
In the performances, we looked at posture, tone quality, interpretation, character and completeness of the piece, and memorization.
Through this competition, rather than simply learning, memorizing, and playing pieces, we hope that our students can interact with the music more interestingly by understanding the background of the composer and the piece.
