Aural tests are an integral part of all ABRSM Practical graded music exams. The Specimen Aural Tests provide teachers and students with many practice examples of the tests to use as part of a music lesson or when preparing for an exam.

This volume covers Grades 8 and includes:

  • practice examples for each test in a range of musical styles
  • the examiner rubrics (the exact words that will be used by the examiner to deliver the tests), so that candidates can be fully prepared for what will happen on the day
  • descriptions of the tests as they appear in the syllabus
  • model answers, where appropriate, as a guide to the sort of responses that would be successful in the exam

The Specimen Aural Tests volumes are each available in versions with or without CDs.

      An excellent resource from ABRSM. The specimen tests create a proper mock exam experience for candidates.

      As a music teacher this book is a vital resourse. The accompanying cd is useful as I am a woodwind teacher, and my piano skills are not up to playing grade 8 aural tests.

      Excellent book to aid preparation for the aural section of the grade 8 exam. Lots of examples, with model answers and CD tracks included for the relevant sections. Great for teachers/tutors.
