Are you a choir student and are willing to test your musical notes knowledge? Notes in music are the duration of a sound and its pitch.

    Explanation
    Legato is a musical term that means to play or sing smoothly and connectedly, without any breaks between the notes. In this context, the word "smooth" accurately describes the legato technique. Additionally, "elongated" further emphasizes the idea of a smooth and connected musical line, as legato notes are typically played or sung with slightly extended duration.

    The word "accented" is the correct answer because it is the only word in the given list that relates to the others. "Marcato," "long," "dog," and "quiet" are unrelated to each other, while "accented" stands out as the only word that describes a specific characteristic or feature.

  • 3. 

    Meter

    • A.

      The way beats of a measure are grouped

    • B.

      Pulse of a piece

    • C.

      Space between 2 bar lines

    Correct Answer
    A. The way beats of a measure are grouped
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the way beats of a measure are grouped." This refers to the pattern in which the beats are organized within a measure. In music, a measure is a segment of time that contains a specific number of beats. The grouping of these beats determines the rhythmic structure and feel of a piece. For example, a measure may be divided into two beats (duple meter), three beats (triple meter), or four beats (quadruple meter). The way the beats are grouped can greatly influence the overall pulse and flow of the music.

    Top number of the time signature.

    • A.

    • B.

      Shows how many notes are in a system

    • C.

      Shows how many measures are in the piece

    • D.

      Shows how many beats are in the piece

    • E.

      Shows how many beats are in a measure

    Correct Answer
    E. Shows how many beats are in a measure
    Explanation
    The top number of the time signature indicates how many beats are in a measure. This means that it determines the number of beats that are grouped together in each measure of the music. For example, if the time signature is 4/4, it means that there are four beats in each measure. This information is crucial for musicians to understand the rhythmic structure and timing of the piece.

    • C.

      Shows how which note gets the beat

    • D.

      Shows how many systems are in the piece

    Correct Answer
    C. Shows how which note gets the beat
    Explanation
    The bottom number of the time signature indicates which note receives the beat. This means that it determines the value of the beat, such as whether it is a quarter note, eighth note, or any other note value. It helps musicians to understand the rhythm and timing of the music by indicating the duration of each beat.

    Fermata

      Hold

    • B.

      Stop

    • C.

      Get louder

    • D.

      Get quieter

    Correct Answer
    A. Hold
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "hold" because a fermata is a musical symbol that indicates a note or rest should be prolonged beyond its normal duration. It instructs the performer to hold the note or rest longer than the written value, giving the musician the freedom to interpret and sustain the sound for as long as they see fit. Therefore, "hold" accurately describes the action associated with a fermata.

      Volume

    • C.

      Uniqueness

    • D.

      Time

    Correct Answer
    C. Uniqueness
    Explanation
    The word "timbre" refers to the quality or character of a sound. "Pace" refers to the speed at which something happens. "Volume" refers to the loudness or softness of a sound. "Uniqueness" refers to something being one of a kind or different from anything else. "Time" refers to the measurement of the duration of events. Among these options, only "uniqueness" is related to the concept of timbre, as it implies a distinctiveness or individuality in the sound. Therefore, "uniqueness" is the correct answer.

    Whole rest

    • A.

      2 beats, faces up

    • B.

      4 beats, faces down

    • D.

      4 beats, faces up

    Correct Answer
    C. 4 beats, faces down
    Explanation
    A whole rest is a musical notation that indicates a complete silence or pause for the duration of a whole measure. In this case, the given correct answer states that a whole rest lasts for 4 beats and faces down. The direction in which the rest faces is not significant in terms of its meaning, but it is often used as a visual aid for musicians to easily identify the rest in a musical score.

    Resonance

    • A.

      To viberate at a certain frecuency

    • B.

      Sound of a pitch

    • C.

      Pronouncing vowels

    Correct Answer
    A. To viberate at a certain frecuency
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "to vibrate at a certain frequency." Resonance refers to the phenomenon of an object or system vibrating at its natural or resonant frequency when exposed to external vibrations or forces. When an object vibrates at its resonant frequency, it amplifies the vibrations and produces a sound of a specific pitch. This concept is also applicable to pronouncing vowels, as the vocal cords vibrate at different frequencies to produce different vowel sounds.
