Prospective students are required to attend an entrance audition which takes place at the end of March / beginning of April every year.
The entrance audition serves to evaluate the basic musical talent of a prospective student and determines whether or not he/she will be accepted into the YPM Music School. Candidates will be tested in areas such as:
- The ability to differenciate between high/low piches
- The ability to imitate short rhythmic patterns
- The ability to repeat short melodies, 1 to 2 measures in length.
Prior musical experience and/or the ability to play an instrument is not required for acceptance into grade Pre-Elementary, Elementary and/or grade 1 of the YPM Music School.
Exact dates for auditions as applicable to the forthcoming new academic year will be listed in our academic calendar a few months prior to the event. Dates, though unlikely, are subject to change. Please do re-check our calendar once in a while.
