  • Select the course for which you are applying.  We recommend that you have all your relevant files together BEFORE starting the application process (see Step Two).


Enter all your relevant information (accompanying parents/guardians for the Junior Course are also required to fill in details).

  • LINKS:  You will be required to provide a URL link to your website AND/OR a Youtube/Facebook link. Please note the Youtube link does not have to be a professional or produced video.  We want to see a true performance of your skill level.
  • Try to make sure that your photos are of a good quality to use in print and online media.  Maximum file size is 2MB per photo and are in jpeg format (not pdf).  One photo must be a HEADSHOT (head and shoulders, similar in style to a passport photo), and the other a good publicity photo.  If you are unsure, please feel free to contact us for advice.
  • Please try to ensure that the MP3 you submit is a good standard and accurately represents your talents.  Sometimes it is preferable to have a well recorded track with acoustic guitar and vocals than a live recording at a venue.

education (Max 200 characters).
