It is determined by the frequency of the sound waves, with higher frequencies producing higher pitches and lower frequencies producing lower pitches. In music, pitch is an essential element that helps create melodies, harmonies, and overall tonal structure.

    C. How thick or thin the music is
    Explanation
    Texture in music refers to the thickness or thinness of the musical arrangement. It describes the number of layers or voices present in the music and how they are combined. A thick texture implies a dense and complex arrangement with multiple instruments or voices playing simultaneously, while a thin texture indicates a sparse and simple arrangement with fewer instruments or voices. The term "texture" does not refer to the pitch, sound, or volume of the music, but rather to the overall density and complexity of the musical composition.

    Which instrument family is the trombone in?

    Correct Answer
    Brass
    Explanation
    The trombone is classified in the brass instrument family. This is because it is made of brass and produces sound by the player buzzing their lips into a cup-shaped mouthpiece. The trombone also has a slide that allows the player to change the length of the tubing, which in turn changes the pitch of the instrument. Other instruments in the brass family include the trumpet, French horn, and tuba.

    Which family is the instrument in that plays the melody at the very start of the piece?

    Correct Answer
    Brass
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Brass because brass instruments, such as the trumpet or trombone, are commonly used to play the melody at the beginning of a musical piece.

      The notes have a low pitch

    • C.

      The notes have a short duration

    Correct Answer
    C. The notes have a short duration
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The notes have a short duration." This means that the notes in the beginning of the piece are played or held for a relatively brief period of time. This suggests that the music may have a faster tempo or a more staccato style, where the notes are played with space between them. The short duration of the notes can create a sense of energy and movement in the music.

    Explanation
    The correct answer describes the texture of the piece of music as starting with a thin texture and gradually becoming thicker. This means that at the beginning of the music, there are fewer instruments or layers of sound playing, creating a lighter and more sparse texture. As the music progresses, more instruments or layers are added, resulting in a denser and richer texture. This change in texture adds variety and depth to the overall musical experience.
