Quiz One News

This first quiz usually takes a surprisingly large amount to time to correct (because of the wide variety of responses to the "mystery" essay and my habit of writing lots of feedback.) I can usually only turn around one section's papers for each class date.

For this test, I am going to tackle the 2:30 (ETR) class first - I'm hoping to get that done for Tuesday. Then, I have to focus on the Thursday Night (UR) people for Thursday, and the 4:10 class may have to wait all the way until next Tuesday. I know that's annoying, I'm sorry! Next time around the 4:10 class will be first in line.

Assignment #5: Reading About Baroque Opera

Here's one of the rare assignments that requires you to read up on something in the textbook. Before you try it, you want to have access to pp. 85-96 in the eighth edition or pp. 89-102 and 104-7 in the 7th edition.

Then Homework #5 asks you a few questions about the material.

This is due before Class 8 (Thurs, Sept 27).

Assignment #6: Meter (Round I)

Assignment #6: Meter asks you to listen to some tracks and decide whether they are in a duple or triple beat pattern.

There are two practice exercises that go with this one as well. There is one based on Baroque music (which is our new historical unit), and one based on old-person indie rock.

Exercise 6 is due before Class 9 (Tues, Oct 2).

Meter Stuff

After the test we returned to the world of musical meter. Here is a youtube video I made that explains the theory behind those stacks of dots I draw.
