Tour de Bakitone
Welcome to New World of Music Competitions by Bakitone International. If you think of Bakitone’s web site as an orchestra, and each of our listed competitions as instruments in the orchestra, you’ll get a pretty good idea of what we have set out to accomplish for you. Though Bakitone.com is easy to use and pretty intuitive, we would like to offer to take you on a little tour that may improve your experience in the future. After all, every orchestra needs a conductor!
Select an Instrument
Choose your favorite instrument… starting with the one you play. Selecting a musical instrument will take you to the competitions for that specialty. You can choose it from the home page, or within the site choose it on the upper part of any page. Just click on the instrument you are interested in, right above the competition headings.
Each competition in the Adults section has age requirements that are usually for musicians over 18 years of age. If you are interested in competitions for youth, you can always select the Youth competitions from the navigation menu.
In the upper part of this page you can see a counter. To the left of the counter is the instrument you chose, and you can see the total number of competitions for this instrument and the countries in which the events take place. It’s up to you to enter and win!
On the middle part of the screen you can select a country to see what competitions it hosts. Once you click on the name of the country, you are presented with a list of all competitions in our database, from the current year, from the recent past, and for the years to come. We try to make our site as comprehensive as possible, so that is it easy for you to use it, and saves you the time of trying to sort through competitions by hand.
By default, we show you upcoming competitions - from today an on. You may choose to see the past competitions or even all of them by selecting from the three options just above the current year: All, Upcoming, Past.
If you want to know what is coming up during a specific period of time, just choose a year from the calendar on the left. Use the arrows on either side of the current year to take you to different years.
When you see a small circle inside a white box to the left of a month, this means that competitions are being held during this month. If you click on one of these months, you now are presented with a list of competitions for a particular instrument, in a particular country, for a particular year and month.
