Where do you do ASTACAP exams in-person (just for those of you in the U.S.)
I want to take an in-person astacap exam. I have already gotten past several levels. I feel that it would be a better experience for me because I would be playing for someone who is right in front of me, and would have to sight read too, unlike in the online exam. I live in Maryland if it helps. Also, are there exam periods for the in-person exams, or is it year round? The online exams have 3 testing periods each year, in January, April, and May (sadly, I forgot about the exam this month) :,(
This is the link you want for Maryland:
Lydia, I live in Frederick County, which neighbors Montgomery county. It is in Rockville if you know where that is. And yes, I think that my teachers often has his students do ASTACAP exams, but I think most of his students do the online exam. I would, however, like to try out the in-person exam. Good practice for auditions.
Sure, I know. My community orchestra is MoCo-based but draws a lot of folks from Frederick County (some of our players also are in the Frederick Symphony), and we run a middle-school/high-school youth chamber music program in the summers, which draws some students from that area.
Cool. What's the summer program called?
