Hey, I just went to England and really loved it there. I was thinking about maybe going to school over there and possibly going to a music school. I was thinking about this school so, I guess my question is how hard is it go get in to a school like this and how good do you have to be? Do you have to be able to read musical notation? -Thanks you

Well not in England but I'm going to be going to a performing arts high school next year (yes i'm old enough to be on the forums) and they require you to learn how to read music. I am a pretty not great player and i've been playing for 2 years so yea. Fastest thing i can play is like...um... freebird solo. I just started classical music and the whole curriculum is aobut jazz and classical...
Hope i helped

Usually you need a prior music qualification that is recognised by the university, to be a decent grade at your instrument PLUS piano (not compulsory but a bonus) and be able to read notation and have a fair knowledge of music theory.

Oh, and they don't take outside applications, usually. Everybody in the UK (or England and Wales at least) applies to university through something called UCAS.

You went to England, and you liked it? Like - Britian? United Kingdom? Oh fair enough.

to apply, all you do is fill out the thing and send in a recording of yourself playing along to 2 of 4 backtracks that you can download.
