Theory exam

Please note! All candidates for the bachelor's and the preparatory programme must take a separate written and oral exam in general music theory, ear-training, and solfege. This will be scheduled for almost all candidates on the day after the instrumental/vocal audition. The written part will be taken in the morning, the second, oral part in the afternoon. This means that candidates should be in Amsterdam for at least two days. The specific day and time of the (written) theory exam and practical audition will be announced in the letter of invitation. If you have any questions, please contact the study secretariat.

For the requirements of your practical exam and the preselection please view the principal subject of your choice under Classical Music
