Here’s a short video with some tips for preparing for the Texture section of the Music Aptitude (MAT) Test. Most of my students find this section particularly challenging and I receive a lot of emails about the best way to prepare for this part of the test. I recorded a short video on my harpsichord at home with some ideas and tips for preparing for the Texture section. I hope you find it helpful.
