    Not sure, Dawn, but I'm guessing it would be musicianship, or ear training. Learning to relate the notes on paper to sound heard to reproducing the sounds with one's voice. Learning to sing scales, intervals, transposing keys, etc. Something every music student does, even if not a vocalist. It's something I wish I had started at a younger age--it's like learning another language. Much easier when you are younger!

    If it's the Asssociated Board of the Royal schools of Music exam.

    He will be tested on 3 Pieces of music.

    Piece A. = Marks out of 30. You need 20 to pass

    Piece B = Marks out of 30

    Piece C = marks out of 30

    Scales and arpeggios = marks out of 21. you need 14 to pass

    Sight Reading = Marks out of 21. you need 14 for a pass

    Aural Tests = Marks out of 18 you need 12 for a pass.

    Aural tests are when the examiner will play a piece of music and you need to work out if it's 3 beats in a bar or four beats in a bar. For grade one the keep it simple and you can clap along. They will then play a piece of music then play it again with a rhythm change or a crescendo in a different place and you tell the examiner what the change was. Also the examiner will play a few notes and you need to sing them back to her.

    You can fail certain parts as long as your final score is over 100/150.

    Pass = 100

    Merit = 120 and above

    Distinction = 130 and above

    Yep he reads music much better than I do. I don't even know where to begin with the bass cleff.

    He knows his scales from memory already and his contrary motion C scale is purty. :D
