Conservatory Admissions

Music is more than a profession. It is a calling. Many dream of success, but few possess the determination needed to achieve it. To be a musician is to devote yourself to constant improvement of technical skills. But technical mastery is no longer enough. The demands on today's professional include a range of skills that would never have been considered necessary in the past, such as computer literacy, knowledge of repertoires beyond the classical Western idiom, and entrepreneurial savvy.
