Hello! This is my first post to the site and really need this question badly answered.
I am sixteen years old and a rising junior in high school
I've played the violin for about six years now, ever since fifth grade. After recently returning from the Summer Music Camp at University of NC Greensboro have I seriously considered a career in professional music.
I guess my question is, am I at the level I need to be right now if I want to do music? Right now, I am in the finishing stages of learning the first movement of the Bach Violin Concerto BWV 1042, in E-major. In the fall, I am going to begin work on the Haydn Sonata in D Major.
I have made regional orchestras, but have not made senior all-state orchestra. I am assistant concertmaster of my youth orchestra. Is making All-State an integral part of studying music in college? I live in MD.
I love being a part of the music-making process, I love the challenge a new piece presents, I love playing the violin!
I researched music schools the other day, and does anyone have an opinion on the following:
U of MD School of Music,
U of NC Greensboro School of Music
Sorry for the long post.
ANY help appreciated.
