Applicants must prepare and perform 2 pieces of their own choice, preferably by memory. These can be of any style; just play something you like! There will also be a short interview in which we ask you about your musical history and test basic musical skills including:
- repeating clapped or sung phrases
- reading chords and melodies
- knowledge of basic chords/scales

We would like you to prepare two pieces on the instrument you would most like to play in the program, and prepare an additional piece on your second-favourite instrument.
