(5) Admission to the study course can only ensue when all the entrance requirements of the desired combination of subjects have been fulfilled. Procedure (1) For all study applicants, the procedure comprises the "General Music Teaching" part examination assessed (written test of approx. 90 minutes in duration) as well as the "Music-related Communication and Presentational Ability" part examination assessed (colloquium of a maximum of 10 minutes in duration). (2) For study applicants with an artistic subject, the procedure additionally comprises the "Auditory skills" part examination assessed (as part of the "General music theory" part examination in accordance with Section 1), the part examination assessed in the artistic discipline (duration 20 minutes) as well as the non-assessed placement test in the Piano compulsory subject, provided that Piano was not selected as the artistic discipline. When assessing aptitude in the various part examinations, the expected development capability will be taken into due account. (3) In the first "General Music Teaching and Auditory Skills" part examination (written test), basic knowledge shall be provided of general music theory as well as the ability to hear and identify elementary melodic, rhythmic and formal contexts.
