Every juror can give 1-10 points for every criterion. The overall result will be calculated by the average number of points.

    Competition

    Apply

    Detailed information

    The theme of the CMA drama youth competition 2019 will be: “What needs to change”. You can apply with a short 20-minute play around this topic – either written by yourself as a group or adapted from existing plays. Your group can consist of two or more people or even an entire school class. Rehearse the play until you are sure that it’s ready to go on stage. Then record it on your smartphone, post the first five minutes of Youtube and then send your application with the link and a short, half-page description of the project, contact info and list of names to us. The three best short plays will then be selected, invited to be developed further – and eventually performed at our concert hall at the CMA. Afterwards, the winner of this year’s competition will be announced. The best youth group of the year will get a ONE-DAY DRAMA WORKSHOP (8 hours).

    WHO CAN ENTER?

    School classes, school drama groups or student groups from all Carinthian upper schools.

    Dates to be requested at the CMA. When is the best time to start learning to play the saxophone? Well, now. Because it doesn’t matter if you are 40, 60 or 80 years old – it is never too late to start learning to play a new instrument. You don’t believe that? Then this workshop called “Sax for Silverheads” is perfect for you. Here, even late starters who have never played or even held an instrument in their life, will learn how to get the beautiful sound out of a saxophone. Intrigued? Then register for this course hosted by Harald Simschitz that takes place twice a month. Also, because it has been proven that actively playing an instrument enhances the quality of life. No matter your age. And that sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? Interested participants are very welcome to come for a trial day. Under the professional guidance by music teacher Harald Simschitz and in small groups of maximum 10 people, participants will learn the basics about playing the saxophone: Finger exercises, short scale sequences, scale training exercise as well as playing easy evergreens and hits. A YAMAHA saxophone (incl. mouthpiece) can be provided upon request.

    The core competence of our music schools is in instrumental and singing lessons. Is there even any space left for accompanying subjects such as music theory within the main subject course? How can these essential elements be integrated into one-on-one or group training in a meaningful way? “GANZ in der Musik” offers opportunities to develop an “All-Inclusive Course” with the right teaching materials. It opens up a new approach to understand how our students understand. By that, we can show them the way to discover knowledge in themselves. The goal is to build up a course that will teach the children new things and offer strategies that motivate them to continue working on their own. Module 1: …and the Beat goes on! Module 2: Many scales with many tones Module 3: Chords – it sounds better “together”! Module 4: Around the circle

    TARGET GROUP

    Music School teachers of all fields, teachers of various school types.
