I've decided to cancel my auditions to the Royal College of Music and Trinity Laban Conservatoire. As much as I love what both of these colleges have to offer, I've kind of realised that Leeds was my first choice and I no longer want to go anywhere else. After spending a couple of months just playing the same pieces, scales etc... I really want to go back to just learning flute again - of course, I've learned a great deal from my auditions and from the intensive work preparation the auditions demand but I really enjoy working on technical exercises, studies and general technique and really just want to learn as much as I possibly can. I am in no way suggesting readers of this should do the same unless, like me, you know it's absolutely the best thing to do. I think auditioning at several places is a wonderful way to experience the colleges and teachers so if I wasn't 100% happy with my choice, I would still go ahead with the others.
Thanks for reading!
