This probably isn't the right forum to ask about this, but.. I've been searching for this answer for a while.. can anybody tell me exactly about the admissions process there? Diffuculty, and what they really look for as far as talent and grades. One of my professors told me that recently they've become more of a factory and are accepting almost everyone just to get their money. But for some reason I don't completely believe that.. seems too easy. One specific question I have is: I've found in one place that they look for 2 years of private instruction on your primary instrument.. and in another place is says just 2 years of private instruction (meaning possibly different instruments?) My primary instrument, guitar, I have been playing for what will be 7 years, but will only have private lessons for 1 1/2 years, as I taught myself and am only starting jazz lessons now. The other 1/2 year I have with piano lessons. I will not be attending for performance, if that makes any difference. I really want to attend this school. It would be a dream. Any information you can give me, I'm sure would be helpful. Good or bad, let me know. Thank you!
