All right, in this class we'll dig into our new historical period in earnest. This is a "no quiz" unit - instead it is supposed to be "homework intensive." To that end we've currently got two assignments on our list.

Assignment #9: Reading About the Classical Period

This assignment gets us into our next unit, the Classical Period (1750-1820). It is based on a reading in the book - pp. 138-153 in the eighth edition, or pp. 149-163 in the seventh. It is due next Thursday (before class 15).

Assignment #10: The Violin Family

This is our first assignment where I am taking something that I used to do in class and moving it online. First, please look at our online unit about the violin family.

Then Exercise 10 asks you a mix of comprehension-type questions and listening questions based on this unit.

I think the best way to approach this is to open the online material and the exercise in separate tabs so that it is "open book."

This exercise is due next Thursday Tuesday (before Class 16). (It's been pushed back one class because I made an error in setting it up, which caused it to not appear on people's to-do lists.)

Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, K. 525: III. Menuetto

This was our first discussion of the big four Classical forms - it is a Minuet and Trio. This video will be a useful reference when we get into our form projects and other homework.
