Music Appreciation Final Exam Review Sheet ALL ERAS Medieval Renaissance Baroque Classic Romantic and Twentieth Century including Jazz Broadway and Rock n Roll First off this is a comprehensive nal 7 covering all information in the course since day one Be sure you review EVERY de nition sheet IN ADDITION to the below be sure you review the previous three reviews sheets for the previous three exams as well The only new material on this nal exam on which you have not already been tested is the Jazz Broadway and Rock nal sections Make sure you have read chapters 3740 inclusive in the textbook The nal de nition sheet 203911 century that we lled in during class has the applicable vocabulary words for these unitsat the end of it You should be able to de ne a given word or come up with the term given the de nition Make ashcards for practice There are no listening questions on the nal 7 meaning nothing to listen to and answer questions accordingly Do not take that to mean however that reviewing the listening list will not be of use to you You should be able to name the composer of any composition we studied in class given the title 7 or given a composer name something he or she wrote Reviewing the inside front cover of the textbook is not a bad idea Review the listening charts we lled out in class as well You should be able to name a composer for each compositional era e g Baroque genre e g symphony or concept eg minimalism we covered in class Review the notes that you took each day in class Naturally if you weren t in class on one day then you ll be sure to get the notes from someone else for that day get those notes from two people just in case one of them missed something You should be able to apply the Italian terms for tempo and dynamics found in the text on pages 19 and 4142 respectively review of unit 1 material 7 still applicable No need to worry about chapters 41 42 and 43 for the nal They are not on the test One way of checking that you are familiar with any term you might encounter on the nal is to read the entire glossary in the textbook p 445 7 455 True this may not make for the most gripping reading but it is one way to be sure Reading one page every day between now and the nal might not be a bad idea Or consider scanning the whole thing and making ashcards of the ones you don t know Pay special attention to words in foreign languages 7 you don t want to be tripped up on the exam by words such as gesamptkunstwerk col legno a cappella or id efzx Due to the nal exam being standardized between sections there will be some questions on the nal that are taken straight from the textbook but that we have not covered extensively in class Many of these subjects were found on quiz 4 but you should make sure you know something about the following composers Bela Bartok John Adams Shostakovich Anton Dvorak and William Grant Still Use Wikipedia for any subjects not wellcovered in the textbook e g Broadway musicals and rock n roll bands of the 80s Usually the rst paragraph covers everything that you need to know There will be a section of questions on jazz Broadway and rock n roll on the nal Some of these will be related to the types of questions that you saw on quiz 5 De nitions You Need to Know Day Three Harmony 7 any combination of notes that are heard simultaneously with the melody generally as an accompaniment and intending
