Week 5: Music Scholarship Update 3rd October 2018


We’re into Week 5 of the Autumn term and Music Scholarship and Aptitude Tests are well underway now.

One candidate from tonight’s group workshop has already sat the Kingsdale audition & interview. Results of the Round 1 Music Aptitude Tests for Haberdashers (Habs) and Prendergast Ladywell Hilly Fields have been sent to some candidates but some are yet to hear so fingers crossed those will be on their way to you tomorrow.

Many other schools are holding their Music Aptitude Tests this week including Twyford on 4th/5th October and Hockerill on 6th October.

I am also receiving emails for 1-to-1 training for candidates sitting the Ashmole Academy tests that take place in June 2019. We have good availability on Thursdays from 5.45pm for individual lessons at our studio in East Dulwich. Email to book a session.


In tonight’s group workshop, we focussed on preparing for Round 2 Auditions and Interview. We worked through the questions commonly asked at the interview, performed the audition pieces to the group and also to the parents at the end of the session and prepared announcing the pieces and names of the composers.

The top tip from the session is to play your most memorable piece first to create a lasting impression. Tonight’s performances included an own composition for guitar, an African folk song, songs from musicals and a solo piano piece. It’s fantastic to hear the wide variety of musical talent in the area. Very best of luck to everyone sitting the scholarship tests this Autumn!
