creativity / musicality - we look for natural 'spark' and spontaneity.
technique - your instrumental skills including awareness of quality of sound, intonation and especially rhythmic precision. You may also be asked to play scales at the appropriate level 
literacy - your ability to sight-read (a short piece may be given) and your ability to understand and discuss music – we may ask you about your audition programme.
musical personality and potential - we highly value these qualities. We look for strength of character, dedication, enthusiasm, individuality and musical potential.
The solfeggio, music theory, harmony examine your ability to understand and identify musical sounds and patterns. This will include an ear test, mainly through singing, and will include pitching intervals, short melodies, answering phrases, rhythms and simple chord recognition.
