3rd Edition

A comprehensive study book with illustrations, questions, activities and answers within the topic Radio, Film, Television and Multi-Media.

This book is the first in a series of books that are topic based and are suitable for study in Preliminary and HSC courses of Music in the NSW BOSTES syllabi. Each topic book explores the six concepts of music- pitch, duration, texture, tone colour, structure, dynamics and expressive techniques as well as unity and contrast.

All the exercises and questions throughout are designed to be analysed at the student’s pace and not under examination conditions. They can be used to enhance practise in writing graphic notation and aural analysis. Each listening example has a main question on which to focus, as well as the inclusion of other activities which will provide a variety of ways to approach aural analysis. At the conclusion of each listening example is a summary of the unity and contrast found within the music.

We have given our own interpretation of how each question can be approached and this can be used as a guide to the analysis of the musical themes.  Written 2016
