I just got a phone call from the principal telling me that I'm accepted into the Sydney Conservatorium high school for year 11!!!

Not that most of the Pit will care, but it's so exciting for me!

The Sydney Conservatorium high school is Sydney's only specialist music school focusing on Classical and Jazz music and it's extremely difficult to get into and is basically a very prestigious school to attend (the front is a damn CASTLE!!)

Anyway, are there any Con students here in the Pit? If so, see you there next year!

I go there.

I'll be sure to tell everyone to hate you, not sit at your lunch table, not sign your yearbook, and never say hi to you in the halls.

You're too kind, I wish I had known someone as thoughtful as you back in high school.

Thank God there are no lunch tables...

But getting hated doesn't sound too fun

Congrats! I'm sorta young right now, but I'm hoping to go study jazz also.

Also, do they have a moat?



Unfortunately no, but the design of the front building is akin to a castle which makes it so damn awesome

I've been on GameFAQ's lately and they use that more.

OT: How exclusive is this school exactly?

Incredibly exclusive, the entire student population is like 60 people and year 7 is made of like 11 people, yes, ELEVEN PEOPLE.


The average school in Sydney takes in about 1000 students and the Conservatorium is huge too.

Are you going into year 7, TS?

Just out of curiosity, what did you have to do for your audition?



Play 3 contrasting pieces, a theory, aural, rhythm dictation test.

I played Bach's Lute Prelude BWV 999, Cancion De La Hilanderas by Barrios and Spanish Romance.

It was really an extensive audition process I reckon but thankfully it all paid off in the end

No, going into year 11, I guess it was a bit misleading to have the number of year 7 students in my previous post but yeah, year 11.

Liar.

Kudos!

What were the theory and aural examinations like during your audition? I've been trying to boost my aural skills for a fair while now (it's getting there ^ ^), and I can't imagine how ridiculous the pieces would be to get into the Conservatorium

And are there particular courses or areas of study for your semester(s)? I'm really keen. ^ ^

Again, congratulations on the outcome; have yourself a fiver.
