The Place of Competitions in the Personal and Musical Development of Young People

Professor Peter Renshaw

Do musical competitions necessarily have to be damaging? Can they be used in a responsible way, thereby presenting a creative challenge to young musicians? In this lecture, Professor Renshaw critically compares two competition models: the 'marketing-commercail competition' (product-orientated) and the 'artistic-educational competition' (process- and context-orientated).
