Be in a minority and kick ass at an instrument.

This isn't science, it's a school that wants talented musicians. The question is,

DO YOU GOT THE GUTS?

but in all seriousness.

You do not need to go to berklee to earn the title of great musician

a community college can offer the same courses if your teacher is cool enough.

it's not about how big the school is, it's about how big your dreams are and how high you're willing to fly

How old are you?

Assuming that you're just getting ready to enter high-school, take all the music classes you can. (Band, steel drums, whatever else you have) and when you're eligible (if your school has it) take a music theory class. Sign up for the jazz band. You also need to be able to:

Play all your major scales.
Play all your modes of major.
Play all your modes of minor.
Play all your diatonic majors and minor chords.
Play a wide number of scales such as: chromatic, whole tone, pentatonic, blues, altered diatonics, diminished scale and be able to play them in all CAGED forms (if applicable).
Be able to quickly make and extend chords (i.e: adding 9s, 11s, 13s etc.)
Be fluent in your theory
Know how to sing
LEARN HOW TO PLAY THE PIANO (and by play, I mean be able to sit down and sight-read any moderately challenging piece of music

Be able to sight-read: a jazz lead sheet, a classical piece, and anything else you can think of.

Be well versed in your jazz (as in, know dozens of songs and be able to throw a chord-by-chord improvisation solo)

Be well versed in classical music (including the history, types of classical music (Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-classical, what have you.) and be able to play a variety of styles of classical.
------

As far as "rock'n'roll" and Dimebag Darrell goes, there's not that much room for it in college.

Expand your horizons and get ready for a long, long, long time of practicing.

Well first of all, your advices are a bit too idealistic. Assuming this guy is a soph or junior, he doesn't exactly have all the time and resources to do all of those by himself. A lot of what you said is what you learn IN college.

Also, classical and jazz are not mandatory at Berklee. The core curriculum is jazz and classical oriented. But as far as personal style and performance goes, it's up to the student.

Cuz there's a sound recognition software that only allows you to talk to them if you're able to transcribe John Petrucci shredding over the answering machine in about 5 minutes and it changes everytime you call

Can I be included in this private exchange on Music College? I imagine that for the renowned Music Colleges, the level of playing and knowledge of theory would all be fairly similar. That said, as an Australian, getting into Berklee College is unlikely, but I would like to know how to get into the Australian ones easily

Well, expectations and requirements differ from school to school, so I could only give you general advice...

Which is what I gave. This is according to my music teacher, a cousin who applied for a music school, and peers who are looking to study music. I'm writing a column on it now as we speak.

The problem is, if one were to really follow through with every point in your list of goals to fulfill, one would no longer need to study music in college anymore.
