This supplementary page is for the HYBRID (on-line) Music History 8B class

Thank you for taking Music History 8B. This is a hybrid on-line class. Everyone must participate by signing in to the class CANVAS shell at least once per week and completing all assignments and quizzes: 

*Video study links for the March 27 Listening Midterm: (coming soon)

*Video study links for the May. 22 Listening Final: (coming soon)

*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, March 27, at 2PM in G-189; you can email me an original ten-paragraph essay about Baroque music. jreager@peralta.edu

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!
