Today wraps up the preview phase of our music theory quiz, which will emerge in our standard formats in due course. But first, here’s one last question for you to grapple with.
Today we bring you the ninth question of our music theory quiz, and it’s about time too. Of four familiar musical forms, we ask, which one is in six-eight meter?
Music theory quiz, question eight, takes us somewhere into the murky middle of medieval obscurity and the life of the Benedictine monk Guido d’Arezzo, who gave us what?
Question seven of our new music theory quiz delves into the word ‘microtone’. If you don’t already know what it means, this can only be viewed as a gilt-edged opportunity to find out.
