Music Aptitude Tests with Graphic Scores

What is the Music Aptitude Test? The test is used by state secondary schools in the UK to select a percentage of their intake on a music scholarship programme. The Standard Test covers Pitch, Texture, Rhythm and Melody and is designed to test a young person’s natural music aptitude. The MAT is used in Stage 1 of the test.

The Enhanced Test includes supplementary questions and graphic scores to cover the 7-section Music Aptitude Test in the style of the test used for Ashmole Academy. Ashmole hold their MAT earlier than most other UK schools. This usually takes place in June of Year 5.

We offer 1-to-1 lessons to help you prepare for the style of tests you will hear. Book a session online: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/se22-piano-school-16475016451
