In this part of the exam you will be asked five questions. Four of these will be about general music knowledge and the fifth will be about your voice.
Part 1 | General Music Knowledge

You will be asked to identify:
■ The treble clef

■ Whole-, half-, quarter- and eighth-note values
■ A rest in the piece
Part 2 | Your Voice

You will be asked:
■ Where is your diaphragm?
■ Where is your larynx?
■ What is the difference between head voice and chest voice?
■ Why is it important to warm up before singing?
