Aural Tests GRADE 4


A

To sing or play from memory a melody played twice by the examiner. The melody will be within the
range of an octave, in a major or minor key with up to three sharps or flats. First the examiner will play
the key-chord and the starting note and then count in two bars. (If the candidate chooses to play, the
examiner will also name the key-chord and the starting note, as appropriate for the instrument.) If
necessary, the examiner will play the melody again and allow a second attempt (although this will affect
the assessment).

To sing five notes from score in free time. The candidate may choose to sing from treble or bass clef.
The notes will be within the range of a third above and below the tonic in the key of C, F or G major.
The test will begin and end on the tonic and will not contain intervals greater than a third. First the
examiner will name and play the key-chord and the starting note. If necessary, the examiner will help
the candidate by playing and identifying the correct note if any note is sung at the wrong pitch.
C(i) To answer questions about two features of a piece played by the examiner. Before playing, the
examiner will tell the candidate which two features the questions will be about. The first will be one of
the following: dynamics, articulation, tempo, tonality; the second will be character.
(ii) To clap the rhythm of the notes in an extract from the same piece, and to identify whether it is in
two time, three time or four time. The examiner will play the extract twice (unharmonized), after
which the candidate should clap back the rhythm. The examiner will then ask whether the music is in
two time, three time or four time. The candidate is not required to state the time signature.
