GACE Music Practice Test

The GACE Music Assessment is a test designed for individuals who want to teach music in the state of Georgia.

Upon passing this test, individuals will be qualified to teach all-levels music, P-12th grade in Georgia. The assessment consists of 2 different tests, which may be taken individually or together on the same day. 

Both of the GACE Music Assessment tests are computer-based in format with two hours given to complete each test.

An extra 30 minutes is added to the testing time for computer testing tutorials. Each test is made up of 80 selected-response questions, such as matching, multiple choice and/or true-false questions.

The questions on both tests assess basic music skills and knowledge, as well as application of this knowledge in a classroom setting. Most tests also include extra selected-response questions, which are not included in the actual test scoring, but are used to determine test-taker performance.

Test I is divided into 4 subparts:
  • Aural Skills and Analysis, which is worth 30% of the total score
  • Composition and Improvisation, which is worth 20% of the total score
  • History and Repertory, which is worth 20% of the total score
