Grade Six Music Theory for ABRSM Candidates A complete course for students taking the ABRSM Grade 6 music theory exam. This book takes you through each topic with a step-by-step approach. The topic in each unit is explained in simple terms with several musical examples, and is then followed by a page of consolidation exercises so that you can immediately practice your new-found knowledge. Model answers are provided. The course covers the ABRSM syllabus for Grade Six, which is a high intermediate level. The course is broken down into three sections, which mirror the way the exam paper is organised - harmony, composition and score-based analysis questions. In the harmony section, you will learn how chords are constructed, about their inversions and the way they are commonly put into progressions and cadences. You will learn how to harmonise a simple melody, by choosing chords that both sound good, and also agree with the "rules" of harmony set down in the classical era. Also in this section, you will learn how to read "figured bass", which is a short-hand system for notating chords. You will be able to produce a piece of 4-part harmony from a single figured bass line, and also learn how to create a figured bass line which will fit a given melody. You will learn how the figured bass system works, how to answer the exam questions, with plenty of tips to help you remember as you go along. In the composition section of the course, you will find out exactly what the examiner is expecting of you, in order to gain top marks for your composition. You will learn how to structure a melody, how to use the ideas from the provided given opening to create the rest of the piece, and how to write performance directions which are meaningful and musical. You will also learn about changing key (modulation) and the most effective way to do this. The last section of the course is general knowledge - you will learn how to answer a range of questions based on a score for either an chamber work, or an orchestral piece. You'll learn about how ensemble scores are organised, which instruments transpose and how, as well as a myriad of other skills such as intervals, writing out ornaments, or analysing harmony. Perfect for self-study, or to use with your music teacher. Ample musical illustrations and exercises are included, with model answers provided. Each page has been carefully designed to be suitable for photocopying. This book is "bilingual", and contains both UK and USA musical terminology.

Grade Eight Music Theory for ABRSM Candidates A complete course for students taking the ABRSM Grade 8 music theory exam. This book takes you through each topic with a step-by-step approach. The topic in each unit is explained in simple terms with several musical examples, and is then followed by a page of consolidation exercises so that you can immediately practice your new-found knowledge. Model answers are provided. The course covers the ABRSM syllabus for Grade Eight, which is an advanced level. The course is broken down into four sections, which mirror the way the exam paper is organised - The Trio Sonata, Keyboard Reconstruction, Composition and Score-based Analysis Questions. Question 1 in the ABRSM grade 8 music theory exam requires you to "fill in the gaps" in a Baroque Trio Sonata. In this section of the course, you will learn exactly what a Trio Sonata is, and how it is constructed, before having a go at building one yourself, step-by-step. You will learn how to cope with common stumbling blocks, such as minor keys, modulation and suspensions, as well as mastering the art of applying sensitive melodic decoration, added 7th and 9th chords and their idiosyncracies. You will also learn how to identify sections where sequences imitation or repetitive motifs are expected. A method for approaching the question in a systematic way is provided. In the keyboard reconstruction question, you are given a handful of bars from a piano piece written in the Romantic era, and will need to supply the missing bars. This section of the course explains exactly how to do that, as well as highlighting some common pitfalls. You'll also learn how to adhere to the Romantic style, and how your knowledge of the "rules of harmony" will help you answer this question in a more effective way. The third section of the course covers composition. You will find out exactly what the examiner is expecting of you, in order to gain top marks for your composition. At this level, the examiner is expecting you to write something which is reasonably sophisticated, which means making use of a variety of recognised techniques. You will learn how to structure your piece into phrases with cadences, how to plan and execute modulations, how to adapt melodic ideas with sequences, imitation and rhythmic motifs and how to write "idiomatically" for the instrument in question. The last section of the course is general knowledge - you will learn how to answer a range of questions based on a score for either an chamber work, or an orchestral piece. You'll learn about how ensemble scores are organised, which instruments transpose and how, as well as a myriad of other skills such as intervals, writing out ornaments, or analysing harmony. Similar to the requirements at grade 7, the grade 8 paper generally expects your knowledge and interpretive skills to be wider, more descriptive, and more accurate at this grade. Perfect for self-study, or to use with your music teacher. Ample musical illustrations and exercises are included, with model answers provided. Each page has been carefully designed to be suitable for photocopying. This book is "bilingual," and contains both UK and USA musical terminology.

The Music History Classroom brings together essays written by recognized and experienced teachers to assist in the design, implementation, and revision of college-level music history courses. This includes the traditional music history survey for music majors, but the materials presented here are applicable to other music history courses for music majors and general education students alike, including period classes, composer or repertory courses, and special topics classes and seminars. The authors bring current thought on the scholarship of teaching and learning together with practical experience into the unique environment of the music history classroom. While many of the issues confronting teachers in other disciplines are pertinent to music history classes, this collection addresses the unique nature of musical materials and the challenges involved in negotiating between historical information, complex technical musical issues, and the aesthetics of performing and listening. This single volume provides a systematic outline of practical teaching advice on all facets of music history pedagogy, including course design, classroom technology, listening and writing assignments, and more. The Music History Classroom presents the 'nuts-and-bolts' of teaching music history suitable for graduate students, junior faculty, and seasoned teachers alike.

Research indicates that aural skills are vital in developing musical expertise, yet the precise nature of those skills and the emphasis placed upon them in educational contexts merit closer attention and exploration. This book assesses the relevance of aural in a university music degree and as a preparation for the professional career of a classical musician. By way of the discussion of four empirical studies, two main areas are investigated: firstly, the relationship between university music students’ aural ability and their overall success on a music degree programme, and, secondly, the views of music students and professional musicians about aural and its relevance to their career are analysed. The subject is investigated particularly in the light of the current socio-educational background of the past fifty years, which has greatly influenced the participation of music and the study and development of musicianship. Many related issues are touched upon as part of the research for this project, and these emerge as relevant topics in the discussion of aural. Apart from students’ and musicians’ views on training and singing, aspects considered include the role of improvisation, memorisation and notation, examinations, absolute pitch and the affinity with language, all of which have a part to play in the debate about the importance of aural.
This book is intended to help students prepare for entrance examinations in mathematics and scientific subjects, including STEP (Sixth Term Examination Papers).

This book is intended to help students prepare for entrance examinations in mathematics and scientific subjects, including STEP (Sixth Term Examination Papers). STEP examinations are used by Cambridge colleges as the basis for conditional offers in mathematics and sometimes in other mathematics-related subjects. They are also used by Warwick University, and many other mathematics departments recommend that their applicants practice on past papers to become accustomed to university-style mathematics. Advanced Problems in Mathematics is recommended as preparation for any undergraduate mathematics course, even for students who do not plan to take the Sixth Term Examination Paper. The questions analysed in this book are all based on recent STEP questions selected to address the syllabus for Papers I and II, which is the A-level core (i.e. C1 to C4) with a few additions. Each question is followed by a comment and a full solution. The comments direct the reader’s attention to key points and put the question in its true mathematical context. The solutions point students to the methodology required to address advanced mathematical problems critically and independently. This book is a must read for any student wishing to apply to scientific subjects at university level and for anybody interested in advanced mathematics.
