    Hello everyone,
    My name is Emrich Stellar and I attend The Lehigh Valley Charter Highschool for the Arts (http://www.charterarts.org) which is a vigiours school that has a regular academic schedule, while having a very challenging musical program in the afternoon. I play the electric and upright bass, and I am apart of various school based ensembles, my own personal gipsy jazz trio, and the school orchestra. I am also the head leader in my Boy Scout troop and have almost achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, so I have some very good leadership skills. I am personal taught by the famous Bahkithi Kumalo, who was or is faculty at your school, Stefan Pizzuto, and Greg Eicher. I am planning on auditioning to your school next year because I am currently in 10th grade.
    So I have a few questions, What kind of grades is Berklee looking for in each student? When should I schedule an audition?
    Thank you guys for making great musicians, and I thank you all for taking to them to read this!

    Hi Emrich,

    Hope this helps.. and there is a lot more info on the site, including faculty info. Bakithi is a wonderful person and player. He visited last year and we had a great time, along with Abe Laboriel, and Hutch Hutchinson. Good luck on your journey.
