7. What’s an advisory audition?
An Advisory Audition is a chance for you to visit NCETM, get a feel for the place, meet some of the people involved, and find out whether you have a reasonable chance of being accepted into the Centre. The Director will listen to you play, and give you some advice as to whether he considers it worth your while applying. If not, he can often offer some advice as to what you should work on to get to the required standard. Even after doing an advisory audition, you still have to go through the formal application and audition process.
