The quizzes offered here are aimed at early stage instrumental students, though they will also be useful in classroom situations. Note values range from whole notes to sixteenths, include reference to 'dotted' values and ties, but exclude triplets (etc). Except in the 'mapping' tests, note value sums avoid fractions of beats in the answers. The chord recognition element is mainly aimed at keyboard students, and the examples are loosely based around the C major triad in root position set in the bass clef an octave below middle 'C'. Each quiz sheet consists of ten questions and includes a mark box. The 'mapping' exercises and trivia sheets have different layouts.
|The trivia sheets are designed purely for fun, though that does not mean
we've made them easy. Good luck... and enjoy.
Remember that you do not need to 'set' these quizzes (or tests) as an 'unaided task'. Try chatting through some of them with your students. This co-operative approach can be enjoyable and useful for student and teacher alike.
