AMEB Aural Tests

Aural/Ear tests are small examples of music that will first be played to you , and then they require you to respond musically by listening , singing , clapping or recognising certain elements of the music.

Most of the tests are played on the piano by the examiner twice , but in the higher grades there are also small tests which require students to look at a piece of music for a minute and then attempt to recall all the music on their given instrument.

There are a number of ipad/iphone apps that can assist you with developing your skills , and for the AMEB , there is an app calls “Auralbook” which gives specific examples that match those of the AMEB grades.
