  • Tolerance – refers to what is required in order to understand and be affected by a piece or style of music. Criticism – a close look at the style and compositional details of a piece of music; an investment that helps you understand a composition and its composer. Understanding – the by-product of exposure and criticism. Understanding a composition and its composer develops a respect for the process and the sound. Personal taste – the impact a work of art has on you personally. Is it possible to appreciate something you don’t like? Do you expand or contract?

      • Tolerance/exposure/receptivity
      • Criticism/analysis
      • Understanding
      • Personal taste
  • Music History & Appreciation
    • History contributes to appreciation
      • A tool that allows us to see musical development
  • How We Experience Music
    • Consider all the different ways you experience music.
    • Places we hear music, i.e., concerts. Where else?
    • Events where music has an important role, i.e., weddings. Where else?
    • How does music effect your emotions? Consider a film without the dramatic impact of the musical score.
  • The Power of Music
    • At the physiological level music evokes impressive responses:
      • Changes in pulse
      • Respiration
      • Blood pressure
    • Writing about and describing something we hear can be challenging
    • The following tips can be used for your listening logs, concert reports or short answers
      • Start with the basics
        • Fast – Slow
        • Voices – Instruments – Combo
        • Loud – Soft
        • Happy – Sad
    How to Write about Music
  • How to Write about Music
    • Stating “I didn’t like it” or “It was amazing” is a place to start, but ask yourself “ why ?”
      • “I didn’t like it because the fast pace made me feel anxious”
      • “It was amazing when the singer sang so high and for so long on the final note”
      • “I was bored” – Better would be: “I was bored since the music seemed the same and it didn’t grab my attention.”
  • Thoughts on Music
    • “ Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn. They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.”
    • – Jazz Musician, Charlie “Bird” Parker
  • Thoughts on Music
    • “ Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something.”
    • – Frank Zappa
    • “ Music, of all the arts, stands in a special region, unlit by any star but its own, and utterly without meaning … except its own.”
    • – Leonard Bernstein, The Joy of Music
  • Part One – Basic Concepts
    • The term “music” can be defined in many ways. What is your definition?
    • An art of organized sound
    • In order to become informed listeners of music we must learn how and what to listen for.
    • Basic Concepts
    • Melody
    • Sound
    • Rhythm
    • Harmony
    • Texture
    • Form
    Unit One
  • Sound
    • Pitch – The highness or lowness of a sound
    • The rate of vibration, or frequency, determines the level of pitch for a sound.
    • Slow vibrations = low sounds
    • low frequency
    • Fast vibrations = high sounds
    • high frequency
  • Tone
    • Tone – A specific pitch (or a note).
    • Western music refers to tones with letter names A through G.
    • On a piano, these tones are assigned to the white notes of the keyboard.
    • Music tones (notes) are defined by their pitch and their duration – the length of time a tone’s sound vibrates
  • Piano Keyboard A B C D E F G
  • Music Notation
    • Music is written on, or notated on a staff , consisting of 5 lines and 4 spaces.
    • A staff is a graphic representation of music tones.
    • Notes low on the staff sound low and those high on the staff sound high.
    C D E F G A B C
  • Melody
    • An organization of musical tones.
    • A succession of tones (a melody) creates a linear pattern on the music staff.
    • Interval – the distance between 2 tones. The most common is an interval of an octave.
    Yankee Doodle
  • Piano Keyboard ↑ ↑ Interval of an Octave
  • Melody
    • A melody is characterized by:
    • Its range – the distance between the highest and lowest tones in the melody
    • Its shape – the overall direction a melody takes as it moves up, down or remains fixed
    • Its movement – how a melody moves from tone to tone
    • conjunct movement – step by step movement, closely
    • related tones.
    • disjunct movement – wide movement, distantly
    • related tones.
  • Melody Shapes
  • Melody Shapes
  • Melody Movement
  • Melody
    • A melody is much like a sentence. They contain phrases .
    • Phrases arrive at stopping points within a piece of music called cadences .
    • Cadences act much like punctuation marks such as commas, semi-colons and periods.
  • Phrase ↓ Cadence
  • Melody
    • Phrases are often presented in alternating, pairs. One phrase often asks a question, while the alternating phrase answers the question, i.e., Row, Row, Row Your Boat
  • Melody: Phrase Structure Rhyme Scheme Melody Structure: poetic phrases often align with musical phrases
  • Rhythm
    • Beat vs. Rhythm
    • The Beat is the steady pulse of music (what we often tap our feet to).
    • Rhythm is the arrangement of long and short sounds in music.
    • Rhythm is the earliest and most basic element of music.
  • Meter
    • The organization of rhythm into metrical patterns.
      • Meter groups beats into stressed and unstressed patterns
    • Meter organizes the beat and rhythm in units called measures or bars.
  • One Measure (bar)
  • Meter
    • The most common meters are:
      • duple (2 beats per measure)
      • triple (3 beats per measure)
      • quadruple (4 beats per measure)
    • Meter is expressed in the beginning of a score with a time signature .
  • Beat Emphasis in Meter 2 4 3 4 4 4 Bar Pattern of Beats or Meter Pattern over Four Bars 2 beat bar S trong W eak 2: S W | S W | S W | S W | 3 beat bar S trong M edium W eak 3: S M W | S M W | S M W | S M W | 4 beat bar S trong W eak M edium W eak 4: S W M W | S W M W | S W M W | S W M W
  • Conducting Patterns Duple Triple
  • Additional Rhythmic Terms
    • Downbeat – the first beat of a measure. Indicated by the downward motion of a conducting pattern.
    • Upbeat – the last beat of a measure. Indicated by the upward motion of a conducting pattern.
      • Upbeats and downbeats follow the direction of a conductor’s arm.
  • Additional Rhythmic Terms
    • Syncopation – purposely emphasizing the weak beats or offbeat. This is a distinct element of jazz.
    • Additive Meter – found often in non-Western music, irregular groupings of beats in a larger pattern. (10=2+3+2+3)
    • Nonmetric – music lacking any strong sense of beat or meter. Can be heard in Medieval chant.
  • Harmony – Musical Space
    • Two or more different tones sounded together.
    • Provides support for melody.
    • Melody is horizontal (linear)
    • Harmony is vertical in music.
    • Chord – a combination of 3 or more pitches sounded simultaneously. A series of chords is called a chord progression.
    • Chord progressions create forward movement in music.
  • Harmony Triad – a special type of chord built of intervals of thirds. Triads or Chords can be played blocked or broken (arpeggios).
  • Scales
    • Scales - A group of ascending or descending tones arranged in a set order.
    • The two most common scales in Western music are major and minor scales
  • Harmony
    • Tonality or Tonal music
    • Music centered around a single tone or tonic note of a major or minor scale.
    • i.e., a song in the key of C
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 do re mi fa sol la ti do
  • Harmony
    • Consonant – restful, passive sounds.
    • Dissonant – unstable, active, tense sounds.
    • Dissonant sounds tend to move the listener forward in a desire for consonance.
    • Drone – a sustained tone against which melody and rhythm develop. Drones are common in non-Western music and Medieval chant.
  • Hearing Major and Minor
    • Scales are like colors on an artists palette.
    • A composer will choose a specific scale to achieve a desired musical mood.
  • Hearing Major and Minor
    • The specific mood a scale expresses is very subjective. It varies from person to person.
    • Generally, we hear major melodies as bright, cheery, optimistic.
    • Conversely, minor melodies are often dark, somber and even sinister in mood.
  • More Types of Scales
    • Chromatic Scale – comprised entirely of half steps. Creates a sense of tension.
    • Whole-Tone Scale – comprised entirely of whole steps. Creates a sense of floating or endlessness due to the lack of half steps. This scale is often used for a dreamy effect.
    • Pentatonic Scale – A five note scale with a range of an octave.
      • The most familiar is playing all the black notes on a keyboard.
      • Almost all cultures have some form of pentatonic scale.
  • TEXTURE
    • The ways in which melody and harmony are combined in music.
    • 3 types of texture in music.
    • Monophonic
    • Polyphonic
    • Homophonic
  • Texture
    • Monophonic – A single, unaccompanied melody. Gregorian chant is often sung in a monophonic texture. All voices sing in unison, the same melody.
  • Texture
    • Polyphonic – More than one melody sounding simultaneously.
      • Songs in a round where a melody is preformed by 2 or more voices entering at different times is a type of polyphony.
  • Special types of Polyphony
    • Counterpoint – another term synonymous with polyphony
    • Imitation – a melody is presented in one voice then restated in one or more additional voices. This is also called canon or round .
  • Texture
    • Homophonic – a melody accompanied by other voices or instruments creating harmony rather than melody. Hymns or folk songs are usually accompanied by chords on a piano, organ or guitar while singers sing the melody.
  • Musical Form
    • Form
      • The overall design of a piece of music. The big picture.
    • Significant for instrumental music since it lacks a text which helps determine form.
    • The Main principles of form:
      • Repetition – provides unity
      • Contrast – provides variety
      • Variation – a blend
  • Musical Form
    • Binary form – two part form A-B
    • Ternary form – three part form A-B-A
    • Elements of Form
    • Theme – a melody that recurs throughout a piece, either in its original form or altered in some way. This is most easily heard in film scores. Themes create unity.
    • i.e., Star Wars
  • Musical Form
    • Elements of Form
    • Theme – a melody that recurs throughout a piece, either in its original form or altered in some way. This is most easily heard in film scores. Themes create unity.
    • i.e., Star Wars
    • Motive or motivic melody – a short melodic phrase that constitutes the building blocks of a piece of music. Usually shorter than a theme.
      • Beethoven’s 5th Symphony is an example of a motivic melody.
  • Elements of Form
    • Sequence – The repetition of a phrase either raised or lowered in pitch, i.e., opening of Tchaikovsky’s Trepak
  • Musical Expression – Tempo
    • The rate of speed in music.
    • Indicated with Italian terms or metronome markings in the score.
    • Largo = slow
    • Adagio = slow
    • Andante = moderate
    • Moderato = moderate
    • Allegro = fast
    • Presto = very fast
    • Vivace = lively
  • Musical Expression – Dynamics
    • The level of volume in music
    • Dynamics (how loud to play or sing) were not indicated to performers until the seventeenth century.
    • The names and symbols for dynamics originated in Italy due to their strong influence in music during the seventeenth century.
  • Dynamics: Names and Symbols
  • Dynamics: Names and Symbols
    • Crescendo – Gradually becoming louder
    • Decrescendo or Diminuendo – Gradually becoming softer.
  • ↓ Tempo Marking ↓ Dynamic mark ↓ Crescendo Mark ↓ Dynamic mark Eighth Rests Quarter note
  • Timbre
    • The quality of sound of a particular voice or instrument.
    • For example the difference between the same tone played on a piano, a trumpet and a violin.
  • Timbre
    • Instruments of the Orchestra
    • Instrument Families:

  • Keyboard Instruments
    • Instruments that produce sound by players pressing keys on a keyboard.
    • Harpsichord, piano, pipe organ
    • Harpsichord – a predecessor to a piano. Harpsichords produce sound when a player depresses a key and a small piece called a plectrum plucks one of the strings. The sound produced by a harpsichord is not able to be sustained and dies away quickly.
  • Harpsichord
  •  
  • Keyboard Instruments
    • Piano
    • Pianos produce sound when a player depresses a key and a hammer strikes the strings.
    • Pianos are also considered percussion instruments since sound is produced through striking the strings.
    • Pianos are capable of a wide range of tones from connected and singing to bright and percussive.
  • Piano
  • Keyboard Instruments
    • Pipe Organs – The King of Instruments
    • A keyboard instrument whose tones are produced through wind.
    • Pipes of various lengths are mechanically or electrically supplied with air. Organ tones are sustained for as long as the player depresses the keys.
    • Organs include stops that allow the player to change the timbre and dynamic level of the sound.
    • An organist can have as many as 5 keyboards (manuals) to play, as well as a pedal board to play with the feet.
