(or anyone else) applying to music college this time round?
To audition in November, you mean?
sorry should of been more clear yes to audition in november!
how do you like the welsh can i ask?!
I like it fine.
Bit messy at the mo cos they are moving everything round and having stuff built but it's a good place to be.
What you thinking of playing?
Sulek Sonata and probably a cello suite i think!
Good choice, the Sulek is one of the set pieces for the first year end of year recital.
Cello suites are hard, make sure it is very musical because Kevin Price (KP to the students) knows them inside out.
Sulek is pretty much my fovorite and i heard it was a set piece for recitals. I agree about the cello suites am gonna have a good go at them like my teacher will sort me out!
Awesome stuff, I wish you luck, my good man!
You might even see me around when you audition.
I have the longest hair out of all the trombonists there, females included
and the biggest bojangles - females included.
Good luck to both of you!
Which colleges are you applying to?
at the moment RNCM RWCMD RSAMD and birmingham
All good colleges with very good facitlites. one thing that people forget to think about is 'Where do I want my career to go?' after they have finished and does the college help you achieve this end.
If you are intending to go into teaching then don't forget to look at some of the more'university' music courses such as Goldsmiths, or if you are good enought to be principle trom of an orchestra look ar RAM or Trinity.
or are you looking at the Jazz courses? then dont forget Leeds.
just giving you a few extra things to think on, good luck in your choices!!
Thanks for the advice!
I have looked at some university course like salford huddersfield and maybe leeds.
Dont really think i am good enough to be principal trombone of an orchestra but reach for the stars and all that! Not sure i like the look of london sometimes and there are some very good oppertunities for people up in scotland aswell. What about guildhall? and jazz is out i think!
Guildhall and the Royal College are both excellent too, I was just trying to impart a few thoughts for you to consider in where you see your fututre direction leading!
If trombone performance is your aim then a conservatoire where you are expected to do 4 hrs a day practice is the route, if it is more classroom teaching then a university based course will give you a wider base knowledge, well that is what they say anyway!!
definately want the playing and practice!
