    I've come to music a little late in life so I have only been playing for around 3-4 years. However, in that time I have accomplished my grade 8 Jazz Saxophone.

    I'm thinking of applying to conservatoires this year however I feel like some teachers have little faith in me due to my lack of experience...

    Can I do it? And how competitive is it to get into a conservatoire music course? Would I struggle? Do I need that experience or would I be considered as an applicant as I am?

    I'm not sure if it is this way for all instruments at all conservatoires but when I applied for (classical) piano 10 years ago, everyone was auditioned. So in terms of getting to the audition, I stood as good a chance as anyone. Then it was up to me to prove in that audition that I was up to the job, to get through to the second round of auditions, etc. It might be similar for jazz courses/different instruments?
