    Applications through CUKAS have a dead line of October 1st (eek!) and I've only just done my personal statement.

    Could you fine tMPers a) say what you think & b) think of corrections/improvements?!

    Thanks in Advance!


    Note: Please don't think I'm a big head! It's what you actually have to do :cry:

    Hi Ben looks good but perhaps not everyone in the world has heard of "for example Leslie Howie, Sandy Smith and Roger Webster"? Do you think you should add a bit about these people that the man-in-the street might appreciate? Perhaps if you refer to them playing for Grimethorpe and Dyke then that would give this some more umph.

    Looks very good to me. Only thing I would say is that you could put some more importance on the non-musical aspects about your life so they get a picture of the whole person. You are obviously applying for music related courses, so they already know your love for music. Its the extra-curricular activities that often impress.

    well done bunny, very good. but i have to agree with bighorn, try and put something else in about hobbies and interests etc and your life outside music. I know you're a very music-arientated person, but like bighorn said, its the whole person they will be looking at, and they already know you have a love of music coz of the course you're applying for.

    i wouldnt worry too much though, i havent even thought about starting my first draft of my personal statement yet. i'm just no good at boasting about myself to a bunch of strangers, i always feel bigheaded and sell mysef short! any advice?
