Manhattan School of Music Jazz

Hey all.
I don't mean to post a repetitive topic, but I haven't really found a straight answer to this question: How difficult is it to get into Manhattan School of Music for jazz? I have wanted to go there for a really long time, and am super into their faculty of course. I'm sorry if this information is recorded elsewhere, but any additional info or history with the school would be greatly appreciated.

John Riley teaches there. You should schedule a private lesson with him. He should be able to give you honest feedback.

Definitely! I actually contacted him a month ago and am supposed to have a lesson with him in September. I will definitely capitalize on that!!!

I totally agree with what Jeff said.
When the lesson is over you say " will I be competative for a spot in this program?"

good luck
