1.   Note Values and Rests
                    NOTE            NAME OF              LASTS             REST
                                     NOTE                FOR…

                                    Semibreve           4 Beats

                                        Minim           2 Beats

                                     Crotchet            1 Beat

                                        Quaver           ½ Beat

2.   Musical Sums Revise the note values and rests.
     You MUST put the values for each note and rest underneath. You will lose marks if you only
     give the answer. For example:

3.   The Notes of the Treble Clef

      On the lines…

                E        G           B              D           F

   OR:          Every   Green       Bogey           Deserves    Flicking

      In the spaces…

              F           A         C              E
Remember:     FACE in the SPACE

4.   The Notes of the Bass Clef

      In the spaces…

Remember:    All            Cows                  Eat             Grass
5.    Matching notes from the treble clef to notes on the keyboard

      Match the notes on the treble clef stave to the correct notes on the keyboard. You should
      know where middle C is. You should use a pencil and ruler and draw a line from each note
      to the key you would need to press. You have done this before in Music Ace.


6. Add the bar lines to these rhythms. Look carefully at the time signature.

7.    Below are four bars. Each bar should have a triad chord in it. One note is missing.
      Write in the missing note and then identify the chords name.

         C Major
         C, E, G
8.        This composition has not been finished! The composer has forgotten to write the chords
          in to accompany the melody. Fill in each box with the correct chord that fits
          the melody.

9.        Inversions
         Chords that have the root of the chord positioned as the lowest note are what we call in root
          position. (IVa). This is the simplest, most stable form for a chord.

         If another note of the chord is in the bass/lowest voice, we say the chord is inverted.

         When the third of the chord is the lowest pitch, the chord is in first inversion (IVb)

         When the fifth of the chord is in the bass, it is in second inversion (IVc).

10.       Orchestral Landmarks: We have just studied this topic. You will need to identify music from
                                these different periods as you had to do in lessons.
