1b. Demonstrating Knowledge of Students 


Every freshman entering the choral program is given an AMMA test, which was created by music theorist Edwin Gordon.  The test analyzes HS/Pre- College level students' music aptitude through exposure to tonal, rhythmic, and composite patterns.  Students respond to the patterns and are scored accordingly.  Their raw score is then cross-referenced against an aptitude sheet.  These scores help us detect where the students' current ability is, and what potential margin they have to work toward while in the program.
