Thread Name: EFDSS and competitions
Subject: RE: EFDSS and competitions
Don't think I necessarily agree Bert - I went in for a singing competition some years ago... for the purposes of obtaining honest feedback on my singing at a time when I was a little unsure whether to believe family and friends' opinions. It was an incredibly useful and confidence boosting experience (in my case) ... and I also ended up making several friends amongst the other competitors. I think it may have some place ... but it would depend on the purpose and intent of the competition.
On the other hand some of the masterclass courses organised by people like FolkSouth West attain exactly the same ends, but without the competitive element (which is obviously not something that everybody would actually want to put themselves through!)
And I'm totally bemused that a thread headed up EFDSS and competitions seems to have evolved yet again into one about Comhaltas !!!
