Tips for Solo and Ensemble Contest

Here is a link to a fantastic handout on preparation and performance at solo and ensemble contest. It contains some great reminders for your students as they prepare for upcoming performances. Download, print, and distribute! (The handout was picked up at a clinic years ago and the author is unknown. Hopefully, it was not written by a copyright lawyer.) Enjoy!
