### The solfege syllables that create a descending MAJOR scale are:

• A.

Do-di-re-ri-mi-fa-fi-so-si-la-li-ti-do

• B.

Do-ti-la-so-fa-mi-re-do

• C.

La-le-so-se-fa-mi-me-re-ra-do-ti-te-la

• D.

La-ti-do-re-mi-fa-so-la

B. Do-ti-la-so-fa-mi-re-do
Explanation
The given solfege syllables represent a descending major scale. Starting with "do" as the tonic, each subsequent syllable represents a note in the scale, moving down in pitch. The syllables "do-ti-la-so-fa-mi-re-do" correspond to the descending major scale of C, which is C-B-A-G-F-E-D-C.

### The solfege syllables that create an ascending NATURAL MINOR scale are:

• A.

Do-di-re-ri-mi-fa-fi-so-si-la-li-ti-do

• B.

Do-ti-la-so-fa-mi-re-do

• C.

La-le-so-se-fa-mi-me-re-ra-do-ti-te-la

• D.

La-ti-do-re-mi-fa-so-la

D. La-ti-do-re-mi-fa-so-la
Explanation
The given solfege syllables create an ascending NATURAL MINOR scale starting from the note "la". The natural minor scale has a specific pattern of whole and half steps, which is represented by the solfege syllables. In this case, the pattern of the natural minor scale starting from "la" is whole step, half step, whole step, whole step, half step, whole step, whole step. The given solfege syllables "la-ti-do-re-mi-fa-so-la" follow this pattern and therefore create an ascending natural minor scale starting from "la".

### Dynamic markings indicate:

• A.

Volume

• B.

Speed

• C.

Short or long

• D.

Connected and disconnected

### The interval between Do and Mi is a fourth. (Remember: an interval is the distance between two pitches.)

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The correct answer is False. The interval between Do and Mi is actually a third, not a fourth. In a major scale, the distance between the first and third notes is a major third, which is equivalent to two whole steps. Therefore, the statement that the interval between Do and Mi is a fourth is incorrect.

### Which of the following markings are actual music symbols? (Check all that apply.)

Mp

A. Mp
C. F
D. Pp
F. Sfz
H. Ff
Explanation
The correct answer choices are mp, f, pp, sfz, and ff. These markings are actual music symbols used to indicate dynamics (mp, f, pp, ff) and articulations (sfz). mp stands for mezzo piano, which means moderately soft. f stands for forte, which means loud. pp stands for pianissimo, which means very soft. sfz stands for sforzando, which means a sudden strong accent. ff stands for fortissimo, which means very loud. These markings are commonly used in sheet music to give instructions to the performers regarding the volume and intensity of the music.

### Tempo markings indicate:

• A.

Volume

• B.

B. Speed
Explanation
Tempo markings indicate the speed of a musical composition. They provide instructions to the performer on how fast or slow the piece should be played. Different tempo markings such as allegro, adagio, or presto, convey specific speed indications to guide the musician in interpreting the music accurately. By following the tempo markings, musicians can maintain a consistent pace throughout the piece, ensuring a cohesive and coherent performance.

### When the key signature contains flats, the following clue can be helpful in finding Do.

• A.

The final flag is the flattest note.

• B.

The first note is Do.

• C.

The final flat is Do.

• D.

The farthest flat is Fa.

D. The farthest flat is Fa.
Explanation
The key signature containing flats indicates that the piece is in a specific key, and the flats in the key signature represent the notes that are consistently lowered throughout the piece. In this context, the statement "The farthest flat is Fa" suggests that the flat note that is farthest to the right in the key signature is Fa. This is a helpful clue because it allows us to determine the position of the note Fa within the key signature, which in turn helps us identify the other notes in the key.

### When the key signature contains sharps, the following clue can be helpful in finding Do.

• A.

The last line is La.

• B.

The first sharp is Do.

• C.

The last sharp is Ti.

• D.

The last sharp is La.

C. The last sharp is Ti.
Explanation
The key signature contains sharps, which means that the last sharp in the key signature represents the note Ti. This is because the order of sharps in a key signature follows the mnemonic "Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle," which represents the notes F, C, G, D, A, E, B. The last sharp in the key signature is therefore the note Ti.

Explanation
In music notation, the location of a note is determined by its position on the staff. The staff consists of five lines and four spaces. The lines and spaces are numbered from bottom to top. The first space refers to the space between the bottom line and the second line from the bottom. Therefore, the correct answer is "first space" or "space 1". This rule applies to both treble clef and bass clef.

Explanation
Do is located on the first line of the staff, which can also be referred to as the 1st line or the top space. It can also be identified as the 4th space or the fourth space from the bottom. In terms of musical notation, Do can be represented by the note Eb or E flat. Therefore, the answer includes options such as "first line," "1st line," "top space," "4th space," "fourth space," "Eb," "line 1," "space 4," "e-flat," and "E Flat."

Explanation
In music notation, the location of a note on the staff is determined by the line or space it occupies. The third space refers to the space between the third and fourth lines of the staff. In this case, the note "Do" is located in the third space. This is the same rule that applies in both treble and bass clef notation.
