Accents oAccents are style markings. oThey mean to emphasize that particular note, to put more weight on it. To hear someone playing notes with accents, click the speaker (the first and third notes are the ones with the accents).
Listen to the sound by clicking on the speaker and pick the best description: a.) Staccato b.) Legato
CORRECT! oGreat job! The example played was indeed someone playing notes staccato, or spaced. When playing staccato make sure you think about putting space between the notes, and not necessarily playing them short. Next Question
Try Again! oTry listening a little harder this time! Hint: The notes are being played smoothly. You can do it!!! Go Back
Choose the Correct Answer Sforzando piano means to: a.) play very loud b.) attack loud and then play soft c.) play soft
Try Again! oI know you can do this! Sforzando PIANO, so part of the definition includes piano. What could the sforzando mean?? Go Back
Correct! oAwesome job! Sforzando piano does mean to attack very loud and then back off to a piano dynamic. Sometimes a sforzando piano can be followed by a crescendo, which would mean you would attack loud, get quiet, and then gradually get loud again. Next
Congratulations! oYou have successfully learned about the beginnings of musical style and expression! oHopefully this activity will only begin to spark your interest into the world of music. Return to Beginning of Activity

Below are links to the standards (Ohio Music and Technology Standards for students, information literacy standards, as well as technology standards for teachers) and a link to the source of this presentation. Ohio Music Content Standards Ohio Technology Standards Information Literacy Standards Sources Begin Activity
Ohio Music Content Standards oStandard: Analyzing and Responding: Students listen to a varied repertoire of music and respond by analyzing and describing music using correct terminology. Students evaluate the creating and performing of music by using appropriate criteria. oBenchmark A: 1.) Identify dynamics, tempo, meter and tonality in various pieces of music. Back
Ohio Technology Standards oStandard One: Nature of Technology oBenchmark B – Identify, describe, and discuss the core concepts of technology. oIndicator: Test the properties of materials. Back
Information Literacy Standards oStandard Two: The student who is information literate evaluates information critically and competently. oThe student who is information literate weighs information carefully and wisely to determine its quality. That student understands traditional and emerging principals for assessing accuracy, validity, relevance, completeness and impartiality of information. The student applies these principals insightfully across information sources and formats and uses logic and informed judgment to accept, reject, or replace information to meet a particular need. oIndicator 4: Selects information appropriate to the question or problem at hand.
