Frequently Asked Questions

3) I understand that there is a string/band music stream but does piano qualify?

Yes, it does. There are three levels of jazz band, four levels of choir and four levels of string orchestra that require piano players. As well, we have four levels of concert band that do not have a spot for piano, but many pianists choose to become percussionists or learn another instrument. These pianists are welcome to audition, but they should be prepared to consider playing another instrument.

Unfortunately, the number of graduating band pianists varies from year to year and we have very limited space. Students need to be at a minimum of RCM Grade Level 10 to be considered. Applicants who audition in piano (any level) will be asked which other instruments they would consider playing as an alternative.
