General Musicianship Notes:

Please be sure you are going back and making all corrections Gwen asks you to make!


Musicianship A

We reviewed what you need to know for your test on 4/20:

  • All Major and Minor key signatures (identify and write)
  • Short rhythmic dictation in 6/8

We started a key signature review sheet, which will be just like the exam. It is attached here if you missed rehearsal. Please finish it on your own. I will go through the answers next week: Musicianship A Key Sig Review (6 April 2016)

For next week: Complete pages 37-40 of Book IV.


Musicianship B

We reviewed triads, both reading, writing, and identifying. This will be on your exam on 4/20!


For next week: Complete pages 37-40 of Book V.


See you all on Wednesday!
