It's time for a new competition smile.gif

This competition will be used to select 5 lucky intermediates for signup in the MTP,
and you are competing for the chance to be mentored by none other than our very own:


Attached Image

Ivan Milenkovic


What we need from you:
  • A list of your previous forum uploads (to demonstrate skill levels and commitment) -
    if you don't have any yet we don't mind if you upload a few in the next few days smile.gif

  • A list of up to 5 links showing forum posts in while you have helped others
    (they can be within the initial competition period if you don't have too many yet)

  • A Video explaining where your playing is at, what you want to achieve as a player,
    and why you think you would make a good Mentor (Intermediate mentors will be required to
    mentor up to 5 beginners as part of the program)



Of course the devil is in the detail, so here are the rules:
  • The competition starts immediately. All potential Intermediates must register their interest
    in the separate signup thread here, and their entry must include:
    - A list of GMC Forum Uploads showing you have been active in producing music and have recording skills etc
    - A list of up to 5 links showing forum posts in while you have helped others
    (they can be within the initial competition period if you don't have too many yet)
    - A video explaining where your playing is at, what you want to achieve as a player,
    and why you think you would make a good Mentor.

  • After a 2 week period, entries will be closed, and the next phase will start.

  • Our panel of judges, Kris, Andrew & Chris Evans will select a list of up to 10 intermediates
    to make it through to the next phase, selection will be made based on skill,
    helpfulness quality of uploads and overall suitability to be a Mentor as well
    as being able to benefit from mentoring by our instructor.

  • Each of the 10 intermediates will be assigned a Beginner to Mentor for the period of 1 month.
    Mentoring will be carried out in the same way as the test mentoring was by Kris and Smells -
    use of the agenda will continue in the same way.

  • Test Mentors will be provided with a suggested sylabus and a list of guidelines to help them.
    They will be expected to show evidence of ability to guide less experienced members,
    assess skill levels and pitch their mentoring appropriately.

  • At the end of this one month process, our panel of judges will make an assessment
    based on the overall success of mentoring, with input from the beginners,
    and through examination of the Agendas.

  • The top 5 intermediates will be accepted into the program, and will start to be mentored
    by the instructor, and over a period of time will be matched up with additional beginners
    to a maximum of 5, to continue their mentoring duties.

  • In this competition, judgment of suitability will be made by our panel of judges,
    and their decision will be final.

  • The prize on offer is to be mentored by a GMC instructor, and no equivalent is on offer.

Sign-ups and entries; HERE!

Good luck everyone smile.gif

This is a great opportunity, no matter whether you think you can do it or not.

I always encourage people to try and interview for jobs that they may not be right for. It gives one more experience when the right job and right time comes along.

The same can be said for auditions. The more you audition, the better you will be at it...and the more relaxed. Regardless of whether you are accepted with this audition, it's worth trying. You will gain more experience, you will be able to see the criteria of which the winners are chosen by, and you will look more objectively at these opportunities as they arise. My vote would be, regardless of whether you think you are there or not, try and see. It will be a worthwhile exercise no matter what!

Cheers!

Wow, that's awesome indeed. I should *really* get a recorder at one point. Ivan's funk and some of his blues is exactly the style I want to become proficient in. For now though, I'll just practice his lessons the best I can. smile.gif

Should the forum uploads be improvs or just any song you've recorded? I'm mainly a fingerstyle folk player but over the past 2 years i've been practicing my lead guitar skills doing pentatonic and modal improvisations. I consider myself an advanced fingerstylist but I'd much rather be judged on my lead ability then my singer-songwriter stuff so would it be acceptable for me to just create a couple of improv tracks and upload those?

Great stuff, again...! good luck to anyone applying... smile.gif Can't say that it be fair for me to try, given that I'm not too active on the forum (more reading than posting, obviously), but always checking Ivan's lessons...
