My son, who plays German Bow, was accepted into RAM and RCM for Double Bass Performance as well as a few US conservatories with excellent German bow teachers. He would like to go to one of the UK schools, but we auditioned in NY so we didn't get the chance to meet or take lessons with any of the teachers. We are doing our homework and both RAM and RCM have strong bass departments, but it does seems like German bow is in the definite minority. Can anyone offer any recent insight into their experience playing German Bow at either of these schools? Any thoughts - either here or via PM would be greatly appreciated.
