Thank you for visiting our website and signing up for the competition. At Six String Theory, our goal is to create a platform for everyone to perform, improve and learn from other musicians around the world.
While this is a Guitar, Piano, Bass and Drum competition, (and there are certainly amazing prizes), the real challenge lies within yourself … to get better, grow, improve, and stay passionate.
With my experience of 50 years, plus the combined knowledge of our esteemed judges, we’re supporting aspiring musicians…through performances, mentoring, education, & recording. We look forward to watching everyone’s videos! Let’s get started…
Note From Lee:
I would like to thank all the musicians that applied to the 2018 Six String Theory Competition! This year SST welcomed visitors from 182 countries. It was truly an incredible experience watching, listening and learning from all of you around the world. I am humbled by the sheer amount of talent that’s out there today. You are creating a global music community that is powerful & inspirational with new and fresh concepts.
A little bit about the voting … Competitions are difficult … (I’ve never personally liked them :)) They have to be experienced as a way to gauge your own growth. Similar to the previous competition, this year’s winners were an amazing diverse group and sometimes the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place was separated by single digits. Most of the judges wrote back to us that it was incredibly challenging to pick one over another. There were so many talented people that joined the competition. Keep learning, growing and loving music. The gift of receiving and sharing music is one of the most fulfilling things we can experience …
