Can Piano be a hook(not piano major)?/1st place SCMTA

<p>Now, I hate to tell you, I do not have any athletic hook or talent to play in D1 sports.
I am first place winner in SCMTA (South Carolina Music Teacher Association), which is competition for piano major, but obviously I am not the piano major.</p>

<p>My major strength is academic. I am top 0.9% in my high school (class rank)</p>

<p>So lets say you are valedictorian out of 100 students, that makes top 1%.
If you are valedictorain out of 200 students, that makes top 0.5 %. haha (division...)</p>

<p>Can music be a hook? I spend tremendous time on music but I feel like college like athletic students (obviously because they have D1 sports) but did they like musically talented students?</p>

<p>I am also considering MTNA (Music Teacher National Association) which is national competition.</p>

<p>I wouldn't call it a hook, but it is definitely a helpful EC that could affect their decision. Did you do an arts supplement? In general your chances of having music affect admission are significantly increased if you either live audition or send in a tape. </p>

<p>Personally I sent a tape in when I applied to my top choice and I got in probably largely because of it.</p>

<p>Thank you, haha dang it. I wish I can have some athletic hook, haha. Thank you though... But it seems so unfair, sport is a hook and anything else is not.. haha:)</p>
