Question by : What are MY chances of getting into schools like Juilliard, Curtis or Steinhardt in NYU?
• I’m a high-soprano and my range is from F#3 – E6 [Pretty much like Maria Callas’ range]

• I can belt some notes, but I can’t belt C5 without going off tune

• I have perfect pitch (or Absolute pitch) and I am currently trying to learn relative pitch,

• My sight singing is good according to my teachers,

• I can learn music quickly (2 times and I’m good)

• I’ve been in Honor Choirs for county (3rd best overall for this year) , Region 1 and so on (Other n All Eastern, I was really, really sick on the audition day.)

• I really want to major in opera, classical, voice or maybe musical theatre.

• I’ve been in choir since 8th grade. Yes, I was a late bloomer for joining choir. I’ve been singing since I was 3 or 4. My first memory of music was my mom putting some book with sheet music of children songs in my hands and playing the casette tapes.

•I’ve been in choir since 8th grade I can play the piano, violin, some guitar chords and I’m learning to play the flute and I’m currently composing a musical

• This may be weird, but I LOVE music theory!

• 2 years of ballet

• Academics and what not: My GPA is a 4.00, I’ve been in honors classes and worked my arse off to get those grades. Sophmore, 16.(They messed up my school records. I should be a junior) I’ve been in drama club for 2 years in my high school.

I like using the dots or bullets because that’s how my mind works. I’m sorry If I came off as a showy, narcissistic or arrogant braggart. I just need someone’s opinion if I am able to get into said schools. =[
Please include my chances of like getting into NYU or Curtis (HIGHLY UNLIKELY! 5% admission rate =_=) as well…

Juilliard has a lower acceptance rate than Harvard, so don’t get your hopes up (though you’re in the minority on Y!A that can spell the name of the school correctly).

    Very slight odds, just like anyone else — but Juilliard and Curtis aren’t the only good music schools, you know 🙂
