Music Skills Analysis Test®

Discover your Music skills abilities and talents!


The Test is lots of fun to do and takes only about five minutes to complete. It consists of 72 questions. You answer each test question with a 'YES', 'MAYBE' or 'NO' by appropriately selecting: '
Yes', 'Maybe' or 'No' from the drop-down menu next to each question.
