How good do I have to be?

You need to possess very high levels of musicianship and to wish to dedicate a significant amount of time to developing your skills still further.

This does not mean that you need to have achieved a certain level of pass in music exams, or any specific formal education achievement. Your ability will be assessed via audition and your acceptance into YYM will be based on potential, not just current achievement.
