Here is our latest newsletter for Music Aptitude Tests. It’s a busy term with a piano competition happening alongside MAT preparation for our music students. As I’m receiving a high volume of emails asking similar questions, I’ve created a Facebook group where I can create an online resource that is available to customers that have purchased the tests through our web site.
NEW: Join our Facebook group to ask our team questions about the Music Aptitude Test: https://www.facebook.com/groups/223219581773039
We are running group MAT training sessions in South London (East Dulwich) at the SE22 Piano School in July and August. The 24th of July session is now fully booked but we have just added a second workshop date on 1st August. Spaces still remain for this session:
We work through one full test and then focus on 1 or 2 areas, one of which is usually the tricky Texture section!
The group will complete 1 test on arrival that will be marked and then one or two specific areas will be targeted for extra practice. As most students find the texture question the most difficult, we always work on this section. Additionally we ask you to bring your instrument if possible and we will listen to your audition piece(s) and give advice on performance as well as prep the interview questions with you. We have a piano available for your use as well as an accompanist so please both music parts if accompanied.
Session duration is 60 – 90 minutes depending on number of participants.
