The selection process is very personalOct 18 2012Music Education
The selection process is very personal. They try to really get to know you and make sure that the program is the right program for you, and that you're the right person for the program. The audition process is very simple, you schedule a time to come in and you perform for a panel of faculty members. Based on your audition you may get a certain amount of financial aid also. They give you a mini-lesson with the applied instructor that you would study with if you end up going to VCM.
