Hi!

I am a pianist too wooooo!
I haven't sent off my CUKAS application yet :O I know, terrible. But I'm looking to apply for RNCM (joint or intensive course hopefully), RAM or RCM, and maybe Trinity and Birmingham. I don't want to apply for too many though, the audition costs are putting me off a bit especially if I don't end up going to a conservatoire!

Uni wise, I'm looking to applying for Oxford, Royal Holloway, Manchester, York, Durham and still considering some others.

Have you finished your applications completely?

I'm going to play
Beethoven's Pathetique 1st Mvmt
Poulenc's 6th Nocturne
Kapustin's 3rd Concert Étude and
Bach's prelude and fugue in Ab major (book I)

I'm so worried about having to play without score though...

Wow you must be so good! I will be playing beethoven first movement of sonata op. 26 and Brahms rhapsody op. 79 no. 1. I am an international applicant so I will be auditioning through DVD. I am hoping that RCS or Bham will give me £5000 scholarship...or else, I wont be able to study at a conservatoire... I will be going to Glasgow Uni (if successful at the excellence scholarship) or CCCU ....

Ooh you're an international applicant? Where from? I am also one (despite having lived here for almost 11 years!) so I have the same finance problems... *sigh*
I've also had to look at international scholarships - isn't the royal holloway one amazing if we manage to get it?!
But yeah I have to play super well to be considered for any at audition! That's also why I'm applying for the 3 year intensive course at RNCM - it will be cheaper than the other conservatoire courses. I really hope getting into this much debt will pay off some day. XD
Your pieces sound great!
