So-I've been playing oboe for 5 years and I'm aiming to do my grade 8 in the winter. I'm working towards grade 6 theory and piano as well. I've been thinking about conservatoires,which is a real ambition for me, although that's a few years away (I'm 16). I've been looking at the Academy in particular, but I'm not sure if that's entirely realistic. Anyhow, I have a number of questions-
Which conservatoire(s) would be best for me?
If I weren't to get into one, which universities are best for music? I've heard Leeds is pretty good...
How competitive are places for oboe? I've heard that getting into a conservatoire on trumpet and violin are fairly competitive.
In terms of 'prestige', as it were, how are they ranked?
Finally, in terms of financing the whole thing-roughly how much are they a year?
I might have some more questions later, but that's all at the moment...
Thanks in advance
