Chance me for NYU Tisch

<p>Hello I want to get into the Clive Davis Program at NYU Tisch. Can you guys tell me what I need to do to get there.
I graduate in 2013
G.P.A- 3.1 but I was hospitalized at the end of the year so it was beyond my control
Gender: Female
Race: African American
I'm a wonderful singer. I'm going to be taking guitar lessons,vocal lessons, and piano lessons this summer. I can read basic music but I could use more work on that.
I'm going to a school next year where you go to college and high school at the same time. I'm enrolling in their music engineering and producing program which will help me a lot. The college has a good music program. Please give me some suggestions as to how I can get into NYU Tisch. Thank you</p>

<p>Definitely, definitely work on your sight reading. Practice every day with a piano because if you make it into Tische, it will be well worth it. </p>

<p>Also try making some samples of music to show as a supplement to your portfolio/resume. It will look nice and show them that you already have some background in the field.</p>

<p>Best of luck!</p>

<p>It's impossible to chance you on this forum as the single biggest datapoint will be your artistic evaluation.</p>

<p>I agree with soze. As a music major, your audition instantly becomes more important than anything else you've done. If you can pull off a spectacular audition, you can get in with sub-par grades for NYU. But if you're going into music engineering, your audition is less important( if you have one). I can't help you much on that, but I can tell you the music performance side of it(as a music performance major).</p>

<p>Make sure to focus your efforts on one instrument, so you can audition with that single instrument and wow them instead of saying, "i'm good at 3 instruments, but not amazing at one of them". and make sure to practice sight reading, and scales. In fact, since you aren't that great at reading music, work on that first, then move to theory. At all of my auditions, I had to sight read. I didn't practice, and thus didn't do so hot. Make sure to prepare your audition(if necessary), at least 6 months in advance, so you have time to practice to the point that you'll never make a mistake under and circumstances. I don't know how skilled you are, but you should be practicing 4 hours a day or more in order to get ready for your auditions. The competition is cutthroat wherever you go, so no matter how much you improve, you can always improve more. if everyone tells you you're great, take it lightly. Know that you have much more to go before you can be called a professional musician.</p>

<p>Good luck with becoming a musician! The arts are the hardest majors by far to be successful in, but they're definitely the most rewarding.</p>
