*Memorize the first minute of each. (Some of the videos are long- you don’t have to listen to more than the first minute). The names of the composers and pieces are printed on the matching test, so all you have to know is the music. Since much of it is unaccompanied singing, you will need to study carefully to tell them apart. Naturally, I will scramble the order.

*For those unable to attend the test on Wednesday, May 22, at 2PM in G-189; there will be an online alternative posted in CANVAS the week of May 12.

Please let me know how you are doing in the course and how I can help you keep up with the discussion and quiz assignments.

Thanks again for taking Music 8B!
