xx Which to choose?
February 02, 2011, 03:07:55 PM by jy_

I auditioned for both the birmingham conservatory and the Royal Northern College of Music and have been offered places for both schools... (Guaranteed conditional for RNCM because i sent a recording)

Does anyone here have any idea which school is better/would provide me a better music education (In terms of practical and theory lessons)? What are the courses like? How about their Principal Study Teachers (I'm majoring in Piano)?

How good is RNCM when compared to the other royal schools such as RCM, RAM, Royal Scottish and Royal Welsh?

My audition pieces were

Chopin Etude Op.10 No.1
Bach Prelude and fugue in C# Major (Bk 1) and
Bach-Busoni Chaconne in D Minor.

I was quite surprised (And glad!) to receive their offers , because i made some mistakes in the Busoni (I slipped in the fast scales - not together), and the ending (piu mosso) was a bit muddy.

What is the right way to play the trill in this piece? It is marked as a trill with some additional flourish and a double sharp notation...

Now I know why everyone plays the prelude and not the fugue.  This sucker is long and exhausting!!!  Kinda fun though...

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
