"The Dennis Alexander competition is an event that first celebrates the music and the students who participate, rather than the feeling of competitiveness.  Through the various recitals and masterclasses, students are given positive and constructive feedback about their performances and, throughout the weekend, a chance to rub shoulders with other inspiring and hard-working young musicians.  Such a positive experience for students is highly motivating and provides a clear goal for their work in lessons and practices.”
