2015 Music Aptitude Tests for Secondary School entry

Music Aptitude Tests

It’s that time of year again when the Music Aptitude Test applications are due for State Secondary Schools. Many of our students use these tests for their scholarship applications to Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation, Prendergast Hilly Fields, Kingsdale and many more schools. These are just some of the South London schools using the test. We recommend these specimen tests to help you prepare for this rather unusual test! Only students that successfully pass this test will be invited back to audition on their instrument(s).

Here is one of our students taking the test. The questions are all clearly announced and there are 4 sections to each test with either 10 or 20 questions. The video has the first ten questions of Section 1. This clip is taken from Test 3 – Texture. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqybv5h1yA0]
