Grade 1 Practice Tests
You will get a chord and a starting note. Then you will have 30 seconds to look through your part (top line). After 30 seconds, you will get the chord and starting note again. I will count you in and then the test will begin.
Remember to do it to a "La" sound.
A. Clap The Tempo
Clap in time with the beat of the music and identify whether it is in 2 or 3.
Sing back after each phrase. You will get a chord and starting note first then 3 phrases which you will sing back to a "La" sound.
C. Spot the difference
You will hear a piece twice with one difference the second time. Identify whether the difference was at the beginning or at the end.

D2 -Where was the loudest part of the music?
