Assessment

piano3 400The Fife Festival of Music uses categories, not marks.

Since the purpose of the Festival movement is education, it is believed that this will make the best use of the adjudicator's time in providing helpful constructive criticism and encouragement, both verbally and on the evaluation sheet received by each performer. All awards recognise the importance of performers’ preparation and, particularly, participation. Music making is paramount: achievements are important and Fife Festival of Music values the involvement of participants.

1. For all competitive solo/duet classes  the categories are: O V G L [Outstanding, Very Good, Good, Limited]. In these classes, a first place will be awarded along with any allocated trophy but this only where an O or V award is made.

2. For all competitive classes 804, 806, 911, 912, 913, 931, 932, 933, 941, 942, 943  the system of P G S B [Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze] continues. All entrants will receive an award and there can be as many or as few of each category as decided by the Adjudicator. There will be no first place awarded and there are no trophies allocated to these classes.

Outstanding/Platinum - Outstanding performance over a range of artistic and technical aspects.

Very Good/Gold - Very good performance: many positive aspects successfully addressed and delivered.

Good/Silver - Good performance with some artistic appreciation and technical ability.

Limited/Bronze - Limited success in performance.
