Ordering Master CDs
Each AP Music Theory Exam order includes one set of master CDs (one master listening CD and one master sight singing CD), regardless of the number of exams ordered. If there will be multiple testing rooms for the AP Music Theory Exam, you’ll need to order a set of master CDs for each testing room. Order additional master CDs by March 15. Review the “Ordering Additional Master CDs” section in the AP Coordinator’s Manual, Part 1.
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
You may add additional master CDs to your exam order until March 15, 2023, 11:59 p.m. ET.
