Chad Alexander and his bassoon have been accepted to the Juilliard School of Music for the performing arts. After an unsuccessful audition three years ago, the 22-year-old Thousand Oaks High School graduate recently passed on his second attempt and will begin classes in September. Alexander has been playing the bassoon since he made the jump from clarinet back in junior high school. It was a move, he said, that surprised his young classmates.

There's a mob scene outside Room 530 at the Juilliard School. A line of students clutching violins snakes down the hall for what looks like a four-hour wait. But at times the line has been longer. Sooner or later, serious student violinists will end up as a pupil of Dorothy DeLay, the instructor who has virtually cornered the violin-teaching market. Her students regularly win top prizes at competitions, get snatched up by major managements and are launched on the high-stakes concert circuit.

I enjoyed John G. Zawadzinski's article of Jan. 28 on Mieczyslaw Horszowski (and attended his Jan. 31 recital at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion). However, Mr. Zawadzinski incorrectly identifies the Juilliard School as the Juilliard School of Music. The school dropped "of Music" from the name when drama and dance divisions were added and the school moved to Lincoln Center. BETH SUSSMAN Beverly Hills
