The following sample ear training questions include material drawn from the four courses in the ear training core music curriculum into which entering students may be placed: Ear Training 1, Ear Training 2, Ear Training 3, and Ear Training 4. Entering students are placed into one of these courses according to the results of the entering student proficiency assessment, which students are required to take during the registration period before their first semester.
The ear training section of the proficiency assessment is in multiple-choice format. You will listen to a tape and select the correct answer from among four choices. The topics include intervals, rhythms, melodies, chord types, and chord progressions. The sample questions included on this Web site cover the same topics, but the format of the questions may differ.
These sample questions are for demonstration purposes only. Your performance on these questions should not be viewed as a predictor of your first-semester ear training assessment, but as a guide toward preparing for your first-semester course work.
