My son will be a rising 9th grade. Singing is his hobby and he did a lot of work within school chorus and have 3 years private vocal training. He was encouraged by the music teacher and some professionals to apply Juilliard precollege voice program. He got callback and did the virtual callback audition last week but no news since that. Can anybody suggest what will be the next step? I search another post long time ago, that if the teacher is interested in one particular student, they will have a lesson with the student before the final decision. Did anybody get in without the private lessons? We are already very happy that he got the callback, but at this stage we really hope he gets a chance to go further.
Another question is if the precollege experience will add something bigger on his resume for college admission. He is also good on academics and showing potentials on science and engineering, which is a much safer route for his future growth. Juilliard precollege is not cheap, wondering what the precollege experience will benefit his future if he does not go to the music route. We are new to high schoolers and know very little about music, so any advice is greatly appreciated.
