Foreword

Australian and New Zealand Cultural Arts Limited is a non-profit examiningbody of the performing arts. It was formed in 1983, in response to a growingneed among private music teachers for an examination system catering fora greater diversity of musical styles. In recognizing the vital role modernmusic plays, especially among the young, ANZCA set out to design itssyllabuses to cater for both classical and modern streams.

ANZCA hopes to stimulate and excite musicians by providing syllabuses thatare at once refreshing and educational. All aspects of the syllabuses, includingscales, aural tests, sight reading and improvisation, have been arranged in alogical sequential order, with due regard to the educational merit underlyingeach requirement.

Modern and classical syllabuses are currently available for pianoforte, organ,guitar, singing, trumpet and flute, as well as contemporary syllabuses forkeyboard, mandolin, bass, ukulele, drum kit, trombone, clarinet, saxophone,accordion, recorder, strings and theory of music. Group examinations areoffered for Classical Singing (Grade 2), Recorder (Preliminary to Grade 3),String Quartet (four levels) and Piano Duet (six levels).

A Performance syllabus option is also available for most instruments, inwhich examinations are assessed on the performance of four pieces only.There are no other requirements or requisites, and modern and classicalworks from standard ANZCA lists may be freely mixed.

The syllabus lists have been carefully compiled, with great attention beingpaid to setting interesting and musical pieces, especially at the junior levels. In most instruments, a Free Choice option allows students to perform amodern or classical work not listed in the syllabus, including originalcompositions. In modern syllabuses, students are encouraged to embellishand improvise on pieces.

ANZCA has been at the forefront in developing modern stream examinationsin all instruments, and will continue to work on improving and extendingboth the classical and modern syllabuses.

SINGING26

GENERAL KNOWLEDGE (Continued)

Notes on the Format

The General Knowledge section of the examination will be presented in the formatoutlined below. This format is based on a set number of principal questions per level, andset wording for each question type.

1. Number of Questions. At all levels, the examiner will ask four (4) main questions. Prompting or “follow-up” questions may be used if an answer is not adequate, witha possible deduction in marks. (Requests for a question to be repeated or clarifiedwill not incur a penalty.)

2. Wording of Questions. Questions will be asked using the wording given in thefollowing level/grade list. This wording has been devised to cover all requirementsfor the respective level. Questions are cumulative from one level to the next, so thatin each grade the “bank” of possible questions increases.

Example: For the first question listed in Preparatory (see below), the examiner willpoint to any sign, word or other item (appropriate to the grade) on the music. Theexaminer will ask for the name of the item; then, where applicable, ask for themeaning. In the latter case the name and explanation will count as one “answer”, andboth must be given to receive full marks for the question.

A hypothetical set of four questions for a Preparatory exam might consist of theexaminer: • pointing to a treble clef and asking, ‘What is this?’

• pointing to a note and asking, ‘What kind of note is this?’, then ‘Howmany beats is it worth?’

• asking of one List piece, ‘How many beats are in each bar?’

• pointing to an “mp” marking and asking, ‘What is this?’, then ‘Whatdoes it mean?’

Preparatory

Knowledge required: The notes, rests, values, signs (including ornaments) and terms from themusic presented for examination. The candidate may be asked to name the composer of anypiece performed.

Questions:

• The examiner will point to a sign or term and ask, ‘What is this?’ and (if applicable) ‘What

does it mean?’ (Note: This counts as one question.)• The examiner will ask of a List piece, ‘How many beats are in each bar?’

• The examiner will point to a note or rest and ask, ‘What kind of note/rest is this?’ and ‘How

many beats is it worth?’ (Note: This counts as one question.)• The examiner will point to a note and ask, ‘What is the letter name of this note?’

• ‘Who is the composer of this piece?’
