i want to ask if anyone have any experience about guildhall school of music&drama.(any help_experience and info would be appreciated).
i searched the internet (also you tube).
and all i found was just a few people's audition experience video and non of them are violin applicants.(just actor&actress).
i want to know how hard is it to get accepted in Guildhall as a violinist?
does anyone know about their percentage of accepting violin applicants?
as i see in their website they want:
1)1st movement of a standard concerto(i called them and they accept Mozart violin concertos as i don't have 5 famous romantic violin concertos in my repertoire)with cadenza.
2)a caprice or etude.
i need your suggestion guys.please name some easy but acceptable etudes between Fiorillo/Dont or Rode/ i didn't mention Gavinies since i already looking to in my laptop and my fingers say no!
3)what do you think about my choices below ?do i have any chance?
Mozart violin concerto 3_4_5/ 1st movement.after your suggestion for one of Mozart's concertos please also name the famous and acceptable cadenzas for that concerto.
Bach sonata in C major.
an etude from Kreutzer(no.26 onward)/Fiorillo/Dont/Rode.
the reason i choose London for music study is they don't have upper age limit.i'm 23 and i know in Europe and the U.S.A people begin sooner but in my country it was hard to find people who can teach me and help me.and i didn't have access to too many things.
my priority is Guildhall/however any information even about other academies or easiest way to reach London and begin my study would be appreciated. thank you/
