You'll need to have your reading skills up to scratch, especially sight reading, and decent audition pieces to showcase your musical skill (Thats musical skills; not volume, speed etc) on the instruments you'll be studying.
Not to worry, im grateful all the same !No problem! Apparently my reply is too short so I will add this lol
I only plays drums, but maybe playing other percussion would be a good thing to consider, in fact ill do just that. ThanksThat depends. Do you only play the drumset? Can you play mallet percussion, timpani, snare drum, latin percussion? Anything along with the drumset? I know professional players who make their living totally in percussion. None of them play only the drumset. All play mallets and timpani.
Exams we have in northern ireland and england, you do them when you 17-18 normally, so whatever the american equivalent is to them, unfortunately i dont know.What exactly are "A-levels?"
Thanks these helped alot!Part 1
If one was looking to get into Berklee, this is what to expect with the auditioning process. VERY informative and thorough. These videos are from JP Bouvet (2012 GC Drum Off winner), who is a phenomenal drummer, and currently a student at Berklee. He runs through everything one would need to know, and expect for the audition.
go to youtube and look up the Berklee drum entry samples. If you think you are on par with those guys give it a shot.
