  • “Reading music”

    Tempo: beats per minute
    Ex)♩=144 Allegro, etc
    -first used in Beethoven’s’ time
    -guideline to musicians to play

    Clef: soprano clef(높은음자리표), bass clef(낮은음자리표), Alto Clef(비올라), etc
    -main thing to consider when reading the notes that are on the step

    Key Signature: consists of accidentals
    Ex) Natural, sharp#, flat♭, Double Sharp##, etc

    Key: ex)D major, b minor

    Meter: Number of beats per bar/ rhythmic value of the beat
    Ex) 3/2 means “three half notes per one bar”.
    -2분음표=half note, 4분음표=quarter note, 8분음표=8th note, 점2분음표=dotted half note, etc
    -the way of grouping rhythms into bars
    -Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring shows really remarkable meter changes

    Dynamics: notations that show volume
    Ex) piano, forte, crescendo, morendo, etc
    -Giovanni Gabrielli, one of the 16-17th composers, is considered as the first musician who actually used dynamics in his music.

    Articulations: affect both duration and the way it is sounded
    Ex) tenuto, staccato, etc

    A lot of interpretations
    -How loud is loud?

    Awesome aspects of music b/c Same way=boring!!
