Ordering Master CDs

By default, if you order AP Music Theory Exams, you’ll receive one set of master CDs (1 master listening CD and 1 master sight-singing CD), regardless of the number of exams ordered. You may need to request more master CDs when additional testing rooms are needed:

  • Order master sight-singing CDs for each testing room if you’re administering the sight-singing section to individual students at the same time in separate rooms (since students must record individually for AP Music Theory).
  • Also, order sufficient master CDs if you have students who have been approved for extended time or other accommodations that require separate testing rooms. You should order one set of master CDs for each testing room.

When you submit your exam order, you may request:

  • 1 additional master sight-singing CD for every 4 exams ordered
  • 1 additional master listening CD for every 10 exams ordered
