Additional Notes:

Theory Review
Use your textbook to quickly review each chapter. Since you know all the content in chapter 1, you will quickly move to chapter 2 and so on. The goal is to find, identify, and fix “holes in knowledge.”
History Review
Referring to your textbooks, make sure that you can name the composers, characteristics, genres, instrumentation, etc. within each era. Review instruments and other elements of World Music.
Music Education Review
Review your textbooks and notes from classes in elementary music, conducting, choral + band methods, instrumental methods, diction, orchestration, etc.
