2017 Composition Contest Theme:
The theme for the 2017 Piano Explorer Composition Contest is water. You can write about WATER in any of its many forms. For example, your piece could be about rain, a thunderstorm, a waterfall, an ocean, a stream, a river, a puddle, or even a dripping faucet – and don’t forget frozen water such as snow, ice, glaciers and so forth. Use your imagination and be creative!
For more information and complete requirements see the January issue of Piano Explorer or go to the January kids page.
