Music Appreciation study guide # 2

How many people play during these musical pieces?

Test Date: October 11th Chapters 20-27 and 28-35

Key: Terms, Practice Questions, Listening Example, People Additional Notes Study Tips:

1) Read the book chapters. This is crucial to success on these test (I have  received a 100 on both the quiz and first test and all of the questions  are from the book).  

2) Review my class notes. This professor is excellent at highlighting what  she deems important so I prune most of the superfluous information in  the book and get straight to the important information.

3) Listen to each listening example multiple times. Make a playlist and  listen to them on loop till you can easily identify them. The last test  had a ton of listening questions and it’s easy to lose points here.
