 College--Auditions, double majors, etc.
Author: clarinet977

I'm a junior in high school and I'm beginning to think seriously about college. I have a ton of questions relating to music, degrees, and basically the application process in general. I'm very passionate about music and while I know I want to continue, I also know I would like to study some form of science. At this point, I feel that a double major or double degree would best fit my interests.
Many of the people around me keep on telling me that it is insane to attempt either of these, and that the workload in college is far too much. Did any of you do double degrees in music and other subject? Did you find the experience to be worthwhile, or was it overwhelming and too time consuming? I'm not much of a partier but that the same time, I hope to have a social life in college.
Also, is it generally more difficult to get into double degree programs? At this point my top colleges are Carnegie Mellon and Northwestern. Know any specifics about these schools?
Also, (sorry, I know I'm asking a lot) when should I begin working on music specifically for college auditions? If I am playing a piece such as the Mozart Concerto is it acceptable to audition on A clarinet or does the audition need to be on Bb? Are live auditions always better than recorded? Any tips at the audition process?
Thank you so much!
