VMTA Sightreading & Theory
Students of any age and all levels are welcome to take the tests. The tests are for single line instrument or piano. The test levels are from primer to Level 12. No specific preparation is needed beyond your normal in-lesson theory training.
The theory tests generally include comprehension, application, definitions, and listening skills sections.
The sightreading tests include comprehension questions on an unfamiliar piece as well as scoring for the student's performance of that unfamiliar piece.
