Music Aptitude Test tips: Texture

I will be regularly blogging with tips on how to ace the Music Aptitude Test. Lots of my students in Year 5 are thinking ahead to September 2019 and how they will prepare for the MATs this Autumn.

The trickiest section, by far, is the Texture section. Here’s a video that I did recently to give you some tips on how to distinguish 2, 3 and 4 notes. I will also be running monthly group and individual training sessions so do get in touch if you would like to book a session. For all of my piano students, Music Aptitude Test training is included as part of the weekly lesson. We have students gaining scholarships each year to local schools such as Kingsdale, Haberdashers and Prendergast. Our tests have been successfully used by students applying to schools across the UK including Ashmole Academy, Parmiter’s, Dame Alice Owen and more! Have a look at our dedicated Music Aptitude Test web site for full information and lots more tips. You can also download the training tests materials that we use in lessons.
