A Parents' Guide to Conservatory Auditions

September 26, 2014, 2:55 PM · pumpkin white background
It's that time of year again, people! College application season.

Last year, just as I started writing a weekly parenting column for Violinist.com, one of my own kids began her grad school conservatory applications. It was, as they say, déjà vu all over again. Except this time she I got to sit back and watch from the sidelines, which gave me time to contemplate the process, and to write.

For those just beginning the journey, here is an index of the 24 columns. The topics are by no means exhaustive (although they may be exhausting—audition year is a long, hard road.)

I'll add more chapters this year to the develop the series further, but for now, here's a good start. I'm interested in knowing your questions, as well as any topics you'd like to read about. You can contact me directly through this site by clicking on the mail link beside this article. Or leave a comment at the bottom of this post.
