To fully benefit from these music learning materials, students should complete all areas beneath the level they are studying.
For instance, an Intermediate 2 student should cover Access 3 and Intermediate 1 before completing Intermediate 2. A Standard Grade Credit student should complete Foundation and General level to cover all of the listening concepts.
At the end of each level there is a quiz to complete. Students can print out their scores and keep a note of concepts that they need to revise.
Instrumental Music - from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods
Vocal Music - from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods
20th Century Music - including all forms from pop and rock to minimalism
World Music - Indian, salsa, samba, Latin American and other styles
Some topic areas include pages with downloadable MIDI files for composing practice. MIDI files should be imported into a music sequencing program or music writing program on your computer.
