I have been playing piano for 12 years, but stopped taking lessons about a year ago. I want to submit a music portfolio to college, but there are many articles citing the "dangers" of submitting a bad portfolio. I know that music professors will be reviewing my work. The songs I am playing are Libestraum-Lizst, Fantasie Impromptu-Chopin, and Prelude&Fugue in C Minor-Bach. I am not planning to major in the Arts; I want to be a STEM major, and I am applying to Ivy leagues. How do I know if my playing is worth submitting; will it hurt my application, if so how badly?
