Every year hundreds of 3rd year Let's Play Music students culminate their three year experience by creating their very own music composition and then share it with others in a recital. Each teacher selects one composition form his/her studio to submit to the national Let's Play Music Composition Contest where a guest judge decides the winners based on specified criteria.
