– Explain how your credentials make you a good candidate
– Express your enthusiasm for music

You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Sir or Madam,
Write at least 150 words.

Dear Madam,

I am writing in response to the advert placed in ‘The City Post’ regarding the available positions in the Cox town Orchestra Festival. I am a pianist, and I have been a resident of Frazer town for over four years. I was most recently involved with the Frazer town orchestra, with which I performed for over a decade on a regular basis. Although I lack professional training, I have been practising piano for almost two decades, and I have recently mastered some unusually played pieces of music notes. I would be happy to perform for your band whenever is convenient for you. I have been practising piano since I was ten years old and my wife too have music in her blood. She herself is a playback singer and we must continue with my music career; it is the only passion of ours.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,
