Just a quick question.
What sort of grade should you be at to apply for the NYBB?
They say you must be at least Grade 5 standard-they expect older candidates to be of a higher standard! I passed an audition last year-just waiting for my seat now!! But, go for it if you think you can!
Ben, you might like to have a look at their website to get an idea.
When I last applied they said it was mainly dependent on audition, but that if you were 13 you should be about grade 6 standard.
What about 14 ?
Well if I knew I would have said :? ... but I don't think there's a definate standard you must be.
Well, You need to be approx grade 5 standard, play one of the entry pieces and study of your choice and know your scales up to 4#s and flats, major and minor!
Thats it! lol!
You also have to do a sight readin which is G8 standard approx.
Go for it Ben!
I really don't think you should worry in the slightest as to whether you're of a high enough standard. Go for it.
Yea, go on, go for it. They could do with some more lads (I believe they're losing another 2 to "old age" for next year) to balance up with all the lasses in the horn section. :lol:
Of course which instrument to choose is the question?, Cornet, Horn or Bass?
does 'youth' mean under 18? or under 21's?
I thought you had to be under 17 to apply though?
Under 21 in Wales....
I am lead to believe that all 3 male members of the horn section are leaving at summer! So you'd be the only one!
yes but I applied and got in when i was 18.
you have to get a reference thing from your conductor as well don't you?
well, your tutor or whatever has to put something yes.
