Question 1 of 30

What are your thoughts on competition in music?

"Competition helps students in a lot of ways. But, if it is used to pressure or threaten, competition should not be used in that manner. I want students to compete, so they get feedback on their performance. Then, they can grow and develop in a positive way."
