AMEB (NSW) does not provide warm-up rooms for most exam venues. Students taking exams at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music or private venues are not permitted access to warm-up rooms.
Silent warm-up techniques such as:
- moving fingers
- tapping rhythms or
- singing in their head
can help students prepare at the exam venue. AMEB (NSW) recommends students warm up at home before leaving for their exam.
Where warm-up rooms are available they are for warming up and tuning only, not last minute practice.
AMEB (NSW) Studios, Clarence Street, Sydney
Warm-up facilities are available for students in the following categories:
- Stings: all grades
- Brass: all grades
- Woodwind: all grades
- Singing: all grades
- Piano: Grade 8 and Certificate of Performance
sitting grade exam at the AMEB (NSW) Studios at Clarence Street Sydney.
Students should arrive with time to take advantage of the warm-up. They will have five minutes to tune their instrument and warm-up. Parents, accompanists, music books and instrument cases should remain in the waiting area. Students may have to share the warm-up room with other students.
- Associate (AMusA) and
- Licentiate (LMusA)
diplomas may use the warm-up facility for 10 minutes before their exam. They may take music books and an accompanist into the warm-up room.
