Lesson 7 - Section 1

What Do These Symbols Mean?

Instead of having a whole quiz, I have a single question for you . . .

Refer to the image for this section.

Question: What are the dark lines with the dots inside the red circles above and what do they mean?

Hint: They are part of a road map for a song.

Select your answer from the following. Choose only one:

1- Cut the tempo in half for each measure inside these funny brackets (left & right tempo change), then proceed with playing the song at normal tempo.

2- Skip these measures inside the brackets if you play the Tuba or the Bass Drum.

3- Whistle the notes inside these funny brackets (left & right whistling signs), then proceed with playing the song on the piano.

4- Play what you see inside these funny brackets (left & right repeat signs) twice, then proceed with playing the rest of the song.

Write down your answer, then proceed to the next section to find out if you were correct.

Music Appreciation

Before we get into more about chords and how to construct them, I thought it would be a good day for some music appreciation. Play each of the following mp3 audio files once. When you are done, you are free to go have some fun!

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) – “Inventions No. 1″



Fredrick Chopin (1810-1849) – “Polonaises”



Sergey Rachmaninov (1873-1943) – “Russian Rhapsody for Two Pianos”
