2021 Teen Cover Competition

Submit a video of your rendition of any song/piece. Will be judged on overall musicianship, showmanship, and creativity.

For this competition, cover refers to reinterpretation of an existing song/piece. This might take the form of creating an acoustic version/changing the instrument, a different arrangement, changing lyrics, or coming up with an entirely new melody.

-For NFSM students ages 13-19
-Explicit language or content is not allowed and will be disqualified.
-Backing tracks/accompanist is acceptable
(please note that this competition is judging the student, not the accompanist. This means that we are looking for the creativity part to come from the student. In other words, if a voice student uses another person to play the piano accompaniment, and the accompaniment was changed to make it your own cover, but the students part is identical to the original song, the student will be judged poorly. We want to see the creativity of the student! Also note that if the accompaniment performs poorly, the performance as a whole will be poorly judged)
