Abstract

The research of “A Design for a National Music Examination Board in Thailand, with Particular Reference to Viola” aims to study the requirements of viola entrance examinations of the three selected colleges of music in Thailand: Chulalongkorn University, Mahidol University, and Silpakorn University; and the critical survey of syllabi of two selected international music examination boards: Trinity College London and Associated Board of the Royal School of Music. By combining the result from both studies, the design for a standard assessment of viola in Thailand is proposed. The standard assessment is divided into eight grade levels as a common practice. For each grade there is suggested appropriate repertoire, studies, scales, and orchestral excerpts for Grade 5 onward. The highest level of the examination, Grade 8, is designed to meet the requirements for the college level entrance examinations in Thailand. The proposed standard assessment is hoped to bridge the gap between social classes since it helps creating an affordable, accessible, and understandable evaluation tool for any Thai music students, regardless of foreign language proficiency, region, and/or income. Hence, this assessment can be adopted by any Thai music institution and is could be used as a part of college admissions in Thailand.
