Liverpool Secondary Schools – Music Places
Four Liverpool secondary schools offer Year 7 music places based on musical aptitude. Those schools are Liverpool College, St. Edwards College, Archbishop Blanch & King David. Places are issued to children based on musical performance and / or musical aptitude. Individual schools change their requirements and arrangements for tests annually (and may have significantly changed due to the current situation) so parents / carers are advised to check with each school.
All of the schools listed above test children for musical aptitude.This test measures a child’s natural instinct for music through a series of rhythm, pitch and harmonic tests.
At The Music Place, we have prepared a number of children for these tests and have a very high success rate of children gaining a place at their first choice school. Our Musical Aptitude sessions prepare children so that they have an understanding of what to expect at a musical aptitude test.
Please note that there is minimal information of ‘what to expect’ in the musical aptitude tests and there are no past papers. However, given our knowledge and experience of delivering ABRSM aural classes, and also of entering a large number of children for tests, we are confident that children will be fully equipped to undertake the tests, following our classes in September. Your child’s instrumental teacher will prepare your child for the performance aspect of the entrance test during their normal weekly music lesson.
When Are The Classes & How Do I Book?
Classes last for 1 hour and will take place on the four Saturdays in September. Parents are advised to select the same session each week where possible at either 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00 & 2:00 p.m. However, different class times can be selected for convenience, and will not affect your child’s engagement with class content.
