Sight Reading Changes:
There will only be one four measure example. Four points in each measure, 2 for rhythm and 2 for notes. Partial Credit may be given.
Examples may be in major or minor but will only come from the following keys: B flat Major, F Major, C Major, G Major or D Major and the five relative minor keys of those five keys.
A starting pitch will be given (not tonality). The student will have 20 seconds to study silently or they may auditate if they would like. After the 20 seconds is over, a second starting pitch will be given and they will begin. The judge will only judge what they hear after the study period and the second pitch.
