Theory exam

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. The written portion of this exam will take place one day in advance of the instrumental/vocal audition or on the day of the audition itself. The oral portion of the theory exam will take place in most cases immediately after the practical audition. Please plan, then, to be present in Amsterdam for at least two days. The specific day/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.
