Must be 17 or under for the student. Teachers can be any age of course.
Must be of good quality video.
Must be performed live. (No Overdubs!)
Must be an original solo. (Can be a jazz or classical piece that's within the public domain, but it has to be a unique interpretation) I don't want to hear "Stairway To Heaven" or Metallica solos! (I will accept original backing tracks, soloed over of course).
Only one submission for each student from the parents or teachers a month! If I get bulk, you are disqualified.
Each video submission must have some information in it like name, name and background of the student, who the teacher is and please tell me why this video is so impressive, or what's the point? Right?
No duplicate winners once they have won (but teachers can always submit new students.)
Please no reversed videos! If you play right-handed, I don't want to see someone playing left-handed!
