Aptitude test

Application information regarding the Coronavirus:

We ask all those interested in studying at the Mainz School of Music to apply to us just like you normally would. Regarding the dates for aptitude tests and other details of the process, we will be getting back to our applicants and will also be updating this website to keep you posted on any new developements.

Passing the aptitude test is a prerequisite for admission to all programs of study at the JGU School of Music. In the aptitude test, applicants must prove that they possess the artistic and music theory skills necessary to study Music. In addition, they must demonstrate that they are able to achieve the desired degree or qualification within the standard period of study. The Aptitude Test Directive of the School of Music forms the legal framework for the execution of the aptitude test.

Each aptitude test consists of several parts:

  • an artistic/practical component (playing an instrument or singing in an audition)
  • a music theory component (aural, composition)
  • possibly other tasks (e.g. an intake interview).

Depending on the program of study being applied for, the aptitude test can comprise different tasks. For more information on the requirements for the various programs of study, please see under "Study options".
