minimum a grade 8 ABRSM Organ qualification
minimum grade 8 in ABRSM music theory

you also need to brush upon your conducting skills, aural skills and sight reading.

probably will need some relevant experience, so being a church organ player, being a choir master or Director of music

are you applying for BA music?
