Reduced Interview Assessment
Before completing this form,
make a recording of your playing that you can access from the device you are now using.
The recording could be saved to a hard drive, on your device, or in the cloud. It will probably be an mp3 file. You might need help with this - but you will have to report on your learning curve as you possibly struggle with that technical stuff!

playing on your instrument. Be ready to copy/Paste the URL
If you struggle with the technical stuff (recordings),
you still need to complete the form
by the due date...and you will reflect on your learning process...technology often gives us struggles!
