G2 – Music theory
The G2-test will take place on campus at Ingesund School of Music 3-4 May 2023. The test consists of three parts: music theory, music and notation, and harmony. Applicants take all three parts of the test on the same occasion.
PART 1, MUSIC THEORY:
The purpose of this component is to assess your knowledge of music theory. In this subtest, you will demonstrate your knowledge of common concepts and ways to term and notate, for example, octave positions, intervals, chords, keys, time signature, and time value of notes and rests.

PART 2, MUSIC AND NOTATION:

PART 3, HARMONY:
This component includes harmonic analysis and chord background.
You will receive the start of a four-part melody that you will analyse using chord indications, as well as writing and completing a chord progression that follows the given chord structure.
