  2. 2. Music 1313 Study Questions<br />Week 1-2: Listening to jazz; <br />Practice/ Conditions/ Economics; Early Jazz (Part 2)  <br />Test your knowledge of musical terms.  Take a look at the list (below) of general <br />and jazz-specific terms.  Write your own short definitions for all the terms you know.  Then check the sources provided for each term.  Does everyone agree? Note the areas of consensus and disagreement you find.  Continue with the terms<br />that don’t have provided sources.  Define them yourself, if possible, and then find<br />the best (most cogent, most reliable, most concise) definitions.  Note where you <br />found them (i.e., write down the citation) and bring them to class.  Class discussion will focus both on the content of your findings and on the process of finding and evaluating sources. Where is the best place to start:  Google? Google Scholar?  Oxford Music Online?  Another source?<br />
