Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone here has ever applied for or graduated from GIT. Im really looking forward to going after I graduate High School, but I don't know if I am advanced enough. I have been playing about 3 years seriously but my knowledge is novice at best. I can only play a few songs completely, not because that's all I can handle, It's just I was dumb and decided to try to learn the hard songs first. But anyway, If anyone has had any good or bad experiences with GIT will you please let me know? Thanks!

the worse they can do is say no.
Go in with full confidence, mate.


Edit: and bone up on theory and technique in the meantime

start with the bread and butter.

learn your scales, your arpeggios, and your key signatures.

Get used to using a metronome. Learn how to use it and how to sub-divide the notes (quarter notes, eight notes, eight note triplets, etc.). Work on learning your basic theory as well. Chord construction (triads and sevenths), scale construction (major, minor, etc.), intervals, stuff like that. They aren't expecting you to know too advanced material.
