Auditions for the core courses are held across the country at times throughout the year.
The qualities that are looked for in the audition are innate musicianship, a sound basic technique and enthusiasm.
The requirements are as follows:
- Two contrasting pieces (if offering more than one instrument, then one piece on each)
- Aural tests for the relevant level may be asked
- Suitable sight reading for the relevant level.
- General musicianship tests.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a suitable time and further details.
Overseas applicants may send a recording if a visit to Britain is not possible. Occasionally, individual auditions may be arranged at Leiston Abbey while courses are taking place. In exceptional circumstances, auditions may be organized at the convenience of the Course Director at any time before the course deadline.
