    READING
    Rate yourself on a level of 0-10.
    (Note: you will be placed in our integrated reading program based on a day-one evaluation by a faculty member.)
    A minimum of Intermediate level reading skill is a required for this program.

    I would rate myself a 6.5 on this scale.
    I have read & played though over 20 licensed musical theater shows, with preparation.
    I can still improve as a sight-reader.


      MUSICIANSHIP:
      Rate your music theory level on the following levels:
      1. Beginner: No theory knowledge nor can identify intervals by ear
      2. Intermediate: Understand key signatures, diatonic and chromatic intervals, and understand the circle of 5ths.
      You can identify diatonic and chromatic intervals.
      3. Advanced: Indicates that you understand diatonic chords, 7th chords, chords with upper extensions.
      Can identify chords and various progressions by ear.

      If this were a scale out of 10, I would rate myself a 7. 
      Highest level upper-intermediate with some advanced concepts.
