Prospective Major: Composition
Graduating Year: 2006
Location: Durham, NC
Favourite Flavour of Jellybean: Ooh! Those strawberry daiquiri ones are AWESOME...
So hey, everyone. I'm applying to Juilliard for the 2006 school year. I'm going for composition and was wondering if there's ANYTHING I can do to aid in my acceptance, or what kinds of odds I'm up against.
Some examples of my work:
~Over 70 pieces for piano solo, including three suites
~A symphony in the making, which includes a chorus and vocal soloists
~Two concert works for piano and orchestra
~My magnum opus, my "Concerto da Requiem" in B minor, a cross between a piano concerto and a Requiem Mass -- nowhere near done but likely to be around two hours long
What say you guys? Does anyone have words of wisdom for the nervous, anxiously awaiting high school senior?
AND WHAT ABOUT SCHOLARSHIPS??? :o
