The Prep Test

Working towards this early goal encourages the development of good technique and sound musicianship. The Prep Test is also an ideal introduction to the experience of taking an exam!

We have developed the Prep Test to be as relaxed and fun as possible. No marks are awarded and there is no pass or fail. At the end of the assessment every candidate is rewarded with a certificate which includes positive and helpful comments from the examiner.

The Prep Test is designed both to provide a first assessment for pupils and to encourage the building of good musical and technical foundations before pupils enter for graded exams.

The Test includes all the sorts of skills beginners will be developing at this stage, such as a sense of pitch and rhythm, controlled and even playing, accuracy and quality of tone, and the basics of musical perception.

Do you teach instruments in groups? Visit our Music Medals website to find out more about our assessments for group-taught learners.
