Ooh, I'll redo mine. I didn't do the guitar/musical aspirations etc. In the video.
Yes! It's CRUCIAL to do that because we're going to share the winning video to the IG page. And the big key of this contest is for this to go to someone who really wants something with music. That's the point of Syn's video! So we're really excited to see!

    Hey y’all !
    Ive been getting a few questions, so I’ve spoken with the Instagram team and just wanted to clarify a few points which seem to have been asked the most.

    You DO need to create something new, it cannot be something you’ve previously written or been working on.

    OR

    You can demonstrate the technique that you have learned !

    Also, don’t forget to mention IN THE VIDEO what you love about the school and what your guitar/musical aspirations are !
    Ahh I've already uploaded mine I knew I forgot something, would I have to re-submit the whole thing with the aspirations at the end for it to count?
    Edit: Just saw the SGSIGTeam reply to Ids, guess so haha will get on that tommorow once my uni deadlines are submitted!

    I wasn't going to participate in this one due to the situation I've recently gone through, but here's my submission! I really just wanted to participate. It's super simple and not much at all, but for me this was something I couldn't do before. You could go, "Give me the notes in the G Major Scale and G Major Pentatonic scale", and I'd look at you like you'd grown seven heads AND were talking a different scientific language.

    Do I personally think this deserves to win? Honestly? No, I've seen submissions I love a lot more and are much more amazing. But is it good enough for me? Yes, honestly it was a challenge and I'm proud of the progress I've made with my theory and understanding of music.

    TRIGGER WARNING: I do cry in this...because I'm talking about how amazing you all are and concerning my Grandpa's passing on the 24 when talking about what I love about the school.

    Just a friendly reminder, if ALL requirements are not met, the entry will be ineligible for the contest. I’ve seen a lot of great entries, but there are some that have not followed the guidelines 100% and I would hate for any of y’all to be disqualified.

    The requirement that seems to be the most missed is that you guys MUST include IN THE VIDEO, a brief explanation of what lesson you’re using and how you’re using it, what you love about the school, and what your guitar/musical aspirations are. Again, this all needs to be included IN THE VIDEO, as the IG team will be sharing the winner’s video there and it’s imperative this information is in the video.

    Can we include all of those thing in the order we want? For example, can I do my performance and then talk about the lesson, the school and aspirarions? Or do I need to put the lesson part before the performance? Just to be even more precise on our submission and don't miss the chance 🖤

    Ok so, I entered some days ago but forgot to post here, so here's my submission:

    It's beginner level, of course, but I worked hard on this and I'm really proud I managed to do something of my own following the lesson 🖤 good luck everybody, I' ve seen a lot of beginners submission and I'm really happy and proud of them!
