Resolution ENS/501/2018, of the 8th March, which establishes the rules and regulations governing the specific entrance tests for entrance to higher artistic studies adapted to the European Higher Education Area

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


To gain admission to Higher Music Education at Taller de Músics you must make an entrance test, in accordance with the provisions of resolution ENS/503/2017, of March 8th, which establishes the basis of the specific entrance test for higher artistic education.

The objective of the tests is to evaluate the aptitudes of potential candidates and to determine whether or not they are equipped to study for a Bachelor of Music in their chosen speciality. Furthermore, in the event of having more candidates than places, the tests serve to identify those candidates who most merit their place on the course.

Candidates may apply for a maximum of two study modes.

The areas and study modes for which entrance tests have been convened are the following:

  1. Jazz and Modern Music instruments. Study modes for electric bass, double bass, drums, horn, voice, saxophone, electric guitar, percussion, piano, keyboard, trombone, trumpet, flute, diatonic accordion, violin and cello.
  2. Traditional Music instruments. Flamenco pathway. Study modes for voice and guitar.
  3. Composition
  4. Music pedagogy. Study modes for voice and other instruments.

Once the initial call for application is finalised and matriculation is completed in the Bachelor of Music, if there are still unfilled places, there shall be a second round of specific tests in September.
