About This Quiz

Not all styles of classical music are the same! You don't need to be a virtuoso or a composer to take this classical music quiz. By the time we're finished learning about you, you'll feel like you can step into the shoes of any classical music conductor! Your love of music will come in handy, but it doesn't have to be strictly classical music. We're interested in your likes and dislikes across all genres. 

Once we've learned your musical tastes, we'll be able to best place you in the classical music period that you are most like. Whether you are open to new harmonies like the renaissance period or you like the more experimental stuff found in the modern era, we're confident we will be able to match you with the perfect classical music style. 

We want to hear about your personality, and we'll have you imagine playing in front of a crowd. The choices you make will tell us where in classical music history you fit in. 

Tell us which instruments you like most, and what music makes you want to run for the off button. From there, we'll pick up on the style of classical music you are at heart!
