The highest frequency that humans can hear is approximately
An ethnomusicologist is someone who
studies music in its cultural context
A vibrating object that produces sound can be a string
Sound waves can travel in a vacuum
Music that describes nature or tells a story is known as
Reason: APE EGS
Can extend the staff upwards or downwards as in this example
Which of the following is NOT a main orchestral group or family
Developed in the Baroque Era the theory of is a sense or pull towards a tonal center or key
Rarefaction is an area of low pressure
The following happens when a composer shortens a musical idea by using only a part of it
A device that displays the continuous plot of a wave is called
The primary orchestral instrumental pallete consists of
the strings, the woodwinds, the brass, and the percussion
Orchestration is the combination of a conductor's musical ideas with the composer's musical ideas
The frequency of waves is given in
Cycles per second. The term was common until the 70's when we
started calling this a hertz. One Hertz is the same as one cycle
per second or cps. 10,000 hertz was called 10 KHZ or 10K/cps.
Energy is required in order to produce any sound
What are the clefs from highest to lowest
In order from highest to lowest, the common clefs are:
Is A vibrating object pushes the molecules together and causes an area of compression
A composer writes a musical manuscript also called
What is a musical motive
A motive is a short musical idea.
A short musical idea.
Once energy is applied to cause an object to vibrate a sound occurs
Sound can be perceived differently between younger and older people

Systematic musicology is the approach to music study from a
scientific or a philosophical perspective. This covers all of the
other approaches of musicology.
The modern term Hertz means
The law of motion that states that an object will maintain its straight line motion until acted upon by an unbalanced force is
If the wavelength of a wave decreases what happens to its frequency if the wave is traveling at the same velocity
If the wavelength decreases, then the frequency increases if the
wave is traveling at the same velocity.
Middle C sits next to the
What is the wavelength of sound in the air at 20000 Hz
Sound wave deals with the volume of the sound
What the name of the highest note in this example
The outer ear does what
The outer ear helps funnel sound (vibrations) into the inner ear,
increasing the number of quieter things you can hear.
