Hi, everybody! I'm a junior in high school, and I was wondering if anybody could help me about the college audition process and music school and such.
I've been playing the violin for about seven-eight years, and I've started thinking about entering college for a music degree. The only problem is, the college I want to enter (Rice University, Shepherd School of Music) is really well ranked among music schools, and I don't know how to go about it. I'm not necessarily a bad player or anything, it's just that I have never attempted to play something like a standard concerto. I'm worried about what I should play, and if I even have a chance of impressing them.
I prefer to play darker, more mellow pieces, in contrast to bright, cheerful pieces, though I'm not opposed to them.
Please, could someone give me a little insight?
