Talent Music Accompaniment Information!
Remember you must keep your talent at 90 seconds or less. We highly recommend that you utilize a professional background accompaniment track rather than attempting to "cut and paste." This is especially important for vocalists. You should search the music catalog companies for pre-cut musical accompaniment tapes. There are excellent music companies that cater to talent and pageant competitions, producing popular songs at 90 seconds. We have included their web links below. Make sure you order the correct time as the companies have both original tracks and edited versions down to the 90 seconds. They are very economical and can change the key to accommodate your vocal range. Make sure that you ask the Local Director what format you should submit for your music. Musical Creations also allows for MP3 files to be downloaded off their site for an economical fee.www.musicalcreations.com / www.omegasound.com.

Competitions are scored on a scale of 1 through 10 using whole numbers only.
