Sight Singing and Dictation Placement Test
This test is given simultaneously with the Theory Placement Test. Students who must take the Theory Placement Test must automatically take this one as well. Each student will be tested individually in a private hearing with a member of the theory faculty. Students will be required to sight sing examples in major and minor keys. These selections will be short passages chosen by the faculty.
