2014 VSNATS Student Auditions Online Registration Instructions
We will be using NATS Auditionware software for ONLINE Student Auditions Registration and Scheduling this year. While the use of this software represents a change for members, we are confident that using it will eliminate a number of logistical problems that have historically presented themselves during the student audition registration and scheduling process. We are pleased to announce this new system will facilitate an extended registration period and an increase in the limit on students per pianist to 20.
The registration period begins Friday November 22, 2013 and ends at 11:59pm on January 6, 2014.
Local chapter dues must be paid by January 2, 2014 in order to be eligible to participate in these auditions. Membership renewal status will be verified before auditions scheduling, and registrations submitted by members with an expired chapter membership status will be rejected. No exceptions.
You must be paid-in-full at the national AND chapter levels to participate in the Arizona district-wide Student Auditions. Failure to do so will result in your students’ ineligibility to participate in the auditions. Please be aware of deadlines for dues payments, to keep your memberships active and current.
Please follow registration instructions carefully.
