Terms of admission for the study course   School Music

 

The entrance examination consists of several sub-examinations. One of the sub-examinations, the First subject examination, will be double weighted over the other examinations for the end result, i.e. either the candidate's first instrument or voice.

 

Therefore, there are two different possibilities:

1. The first instrument is registered as first subject with double weighting

If this is piano, the entrance examinations will consist of the following examination parts:

In this case, an instrument must be additionally chosen as first subject which - just like voice - will be examined under first subject conditions (but will be normally weighted for the end result).

If the first instrument is piano, the entrance examination will consist of the following examination parts:

If in addition to vocal with double weighting your first instrument is not the piano, an additional examination has to be taken in piano as second instrument.
