Saturday 23 September 2017: Written Musical Aptitude Tests – approximately one hour duration. (Computer-based test).
Music: Each candidate applying under this criterion will be invited to a musical aptitude test at Enfield Grammar School. Candidates who achieve the qualifying mark in the test will be invited to an audition to perform a single piece on their chosen instrument or vocally. The musical aptitude test is of approximately 40 minutes’ duration and does not require any formal knowledge of music theory. The test will cover questions on pitch, rhythm, texture and melody and will be performed on computers.
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.
