    • Jaco van der Merwe 13 June 2016 | Reply
      If you don't have any formal music training, we use the musical aptitude test to determine your suitability for music study. If you are accepted, you will need to have a main instrument for your music study, which in your case will have to be piano as we don't offer guitar.

      Unfortunately, any tertiary education study requires that you complete your secondary education study (Matric) first.
