Music Aptitude Test training group session (Drop-off Session)
Workshop leader: Lorraine Liyanage, SE22 Piano School
To help Year 4, 5 and 6 musicians prepare for the upcoming Music Scholarships for 2019 state secondary admissions. The session will focus on Music Aptitude Test training that is the first round of the selective music intake process. There will be a maximum of 4 participants per session.
We recommend completing at least 1 Music Aptitude Test before attending this session. You will be asked for a breakdown of your marks when you book the session.
The session is as follows:
1) Music Aptitude Test training
2) Performance of your audition pieces.
3) Preparation for the interview.
4) Summary of readiness for the test & guidance on what to prepare at home.
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 bring both music parts if accompanied.
Session duration is determined by the number of participants. Arrival from 6.20pm for a 6.30pm start. Please note that we are teaching until 6.20pm so if you arrive early, please wait outside and the workshop leader will come and get you at this time. This is a drop-off session. At the end of the session we will go through the areas that need focus and attention.
We are also running a session in October focussing solely on Round 2 auditions.
