Federation, Incentives

NFMC

Congratulations to Jill for earning her 45-point cup and Rachel for earning her 30-point cup.  It was a group effort from family and multiple teachers.

While the rating is not the reason why I have my students participate in solo festival of Federation, it is the performance experience that I value.  It does show persistence to earn gold cups when you consider it takes at least three years to earn one (15 points).  The 45-point cup is Jill’s third gold cup, and the 30-point cup is Rachel’s second.

The National Federation of Music Clubs Junior Pledge is inspiring.  Here it is:  I acknowledge my indebtedness to good music; I know that the music of a nation inspires of degrades; I realize that acquaintance with great music instills a love of that which brings courage and lofty ideals and tends toward clean, noble living.  I promise to do all in my power to make America truly musical.
