May 13, 2013 at 5:40 PMI had an AP Test today for Music Theory! This is the one and only test I have to take this year. Or, that I took. If you don't know, the AP test is broken into four parts: Section I, Part A, for the aural stuff (listening to music and then answering questions based on what you hear), Section I, Part B, for the written stuff (looking at scores and then answering questions based on what you see), Section II, Part A, compositional techniques (part-writing, melodic/harmonic dictation, and bass-line composition), and finally, Section II, Part B, sight-singing. I thought the test overall was a moderate difficulty. There were some simple questions, some easy, some moderate, and a few difficult ones that threw me off, but overall, it wasn't so bad. There was one question where the passage was played by a violin, which was cool. :) I'll get the results in July online, so maybe I'll post another entry then.
Now I have that out of the way! Now to finish my Vivaldi project...
