Studying Music

Post by IBAlexanderHamilton » Fri Aug 26, 2016 12:53 am

Hello,

Our team has lost several key members, and in all honesty it is a regrowing team. we have studied extensively for geography, history, trash, and art but we need
severe help with music. do any of you know good ways to learn the "power" details for music questions? We use NAQT style competitions

For operas at least at the high school level, Quinterest + YouTube (to listen to arias) + Wikipedia summaries should suffice. I personally used Mnemosyne to card those clues and was able to power most opera tossups relatively easily.

Also do the same for symphonies and other works. YouTube is very helpful for this, so you can hear what the question is talking about. I think I've used YouTube for music more times than I've used Quinterest or Wikipedia, but the latter two can remind you of what to listen for.
