Two contrasting pieces of your own choice.
You may be asked to play scales, arpeggios, etc to ABRSM Grade 8 standard – except for flute candidates, whose scale requirements are detailed below.
You may be given sight reading or quick study tests.
Flute candidates (undergraduate and postgraduate) scales and arpeggios
Major, minor (harmonic and melodic) extended scales (i.e. start on the requested tonic and go up to top A, A sharp, B flat or B and down to D, D flat, C sharp or C and then back to the tonic) and their extended arpeggios, to be played from memory.
You may be asked to take some aural skills tests, consisting of a sight-singing test and some of the following:
- singing the middle notes in a chord
- identification of intervals
- sight reading of rhythms
- sight reading of two simultaneous different rhythms, to be sung and clapped.
You will be required to take a 50-minute written paper including harmonisation of a melody and a short essay question of a general musical nature. You will be permitted to use a printed dictionary. Sorry, we cannot issue specimen papers.
There are specific requirements for written work to support your application (except MA).
