Excelsior College : Introduction to Music preparation and study guides. Comments, ratings, feedback.

Measures knowledge and understanding of the material and skills typically taught in a one-semester course in music appreciation. The content of the examination is drawn from that commonly included in courses with titles like Introduction to Music Literature, Music Appreciation, Survey of Music, and Music in the Western World. Topics include elements of music theory (for example: pitch, dynamics, rhythm, melody); types of voices, instruments, and ensembles; characteristics, forms, and representative composers from the Middle Ages to the present; and elements of contemporary and non-Western music. No prior knowledge of music is assumed. The examination tests for a knowledge of facts and terminology, an understanding of concepts and forms, and the student s ability to apply this knowledge and understanding in listening to musical compositions. Headphones will be provided for use on the listening questions. (Multiple-choice examination.)
