    A. T-T-S-T-T-T-S
    Explanation
    The correct pattern of tones and semitones that makes up a Major scale is T-T-S-T-T-T-S. This means that there are two whole steps (T) followed by a half step (S), then three whole steps followed by another half step. This pattern of intervals creates the characteristic sound and structure of a Major scale.

      C#

    • B.

      E#, B#

    • C.

      F#

    • D.

      A flat

    Correct Answer
    C. F#
    Explanation
    The key signature of the G Major scale is F#. In the key of G Major, there is only one sharp, which is F#. The F# is placed at the beginning of each staff line to indicate that all F notes in the piece should be played as F# instead. This key signature is commonly used in music written in the G Major key, as it helps to maintain the tonality and sound of the scale.

    • C.

      Is made up of sharps and flats

    • D.

      Shares the same notes and key signature as its relative major scale

    Correct Answer
    D. Shares the same notes and key signature as its relative major scale
    Explanation
    A relative minor scale shares the same notes and key signature as its relative major scale. This means that the relative minor scale is derived from the same set of notes as its relative major scale, but starts on a different note. Therefore, the relative minor scale will have the same sharps or flats in its key signature as its relative major scale.

    What scale is the relative minor scale of G major?

    • A.

      E natural minor

    • B.

      G natural minor

    • C.

      C natural minor

    • D.

      D major

    Correct Answer
    A. E natural minor
    Explanation
    The relative minor scale of G major is E natural minor because the relative minor scale is always built on the sixth note of the major scale. In the case of G major, the sixth note is E, and the E natural minor scale is formed by lowering the third, sixth, and seventh notes of the E major scale.

    What is syncopation?

    • A.

      Syncopation is where rhythms are played at high speed.

    • B.

      Syncopation marks in a piece where you should play really loud.

    • C.

      Syncopation is where rhythmic emphasis is placed on the off beat.

    • D.

      Syncopation is a term that means to play smoothly.

    Correct Answer
    C. Syncopation is where rhythmic emphasis is placed on the off beat.
    Explanation
    Syncopation refers to a musical technique where the accent or emphasis is placed on the offbeat, rather than the expected strong beats. This creates a syncopated rhythm, adding a sense of unexpectedness and complexity to the music. It is not about playing rhythms at high speed, marking loud sections, or playing smoothly, but specifically about emphasizing the offbeat.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which major scale has the key signature of F# and C#?

    • A.

      C Major

    • B.

      D Major

    • C.

      G Major

    • D.

      F Major

    Correct Answer
    B. D Major
    Explanation
    The key signature of F# and C# indicates that the major scale being referred to has these two sharps. D Major is the correct answer because it is the only major scale that includes F# and C# in its key signature. In D Major, all the notes in the scale are natural except for F and C, which are raised by a half step to F# and C#.
