Introduction

This is the theory part of the entrance examination. You are invited to use it to prepare yourself for the entrance examination next year. The type of questions will be more or less the same. The content of the questions will be different (as you might have guessed already).

The examination is divided into two parts:
the first part consists of solfège questions:

For the questions A-D (written part of the examination - ear training) you get 45 minutes. The practical solfege examination will take about 15-20 minutes: examples of this part of the examination you will find at E-H.

The second part contains 20 questions about general music theory. You get 40 minutes for this parrt of the examination.
Each questions contains easier and more difficult parts. You do not have to know the correct answer to all the questions to be admitted, even less if you apply for the preparatory year. Do what you can and leave things that might prove too difficult for you.

The audio examples of the solfège part are mp3 files. To be able to use them on your computer you need the following:

  • a reasonably fast connection to the internet (56K-modem, ISDN or cable modem)
  • a recent browser (Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher, Netscape Navigator 4.0 or higher)
  • a plug-in capable of playing mp3 files through your browser (b.v. Quicktime of Windows MediaPlayer)
The answer is hidden underneath the empty space reserved for your answers. You can find them by passing with your mouse over the space.
