LISTENING ASSIGNMENT: Describe the form of Listening Rest Part 1-B “Bye-Bye Love”, by using alphabetical symbols. Each letter should indicate a unique section of the song, with letters repeating if a song section repeats. (Usually a verse or a chorus) (A, B, C etc.)
As this is your first listening test, let’s review a few simple methods that might help you to do your best. Listen to the song in it’s entirety, as if for FUN. Then listen again, thinking about the different parts of the song. As you listen, jot down your reflections as to what section you might be hearing, a chorus or a verse. Any section that has the same melody gets the same letter, no matter how different the words are.
Example: Jingle Bells = A, A, B, B, A, A
The Chorus, “Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the Way”, etc., would equal “A” because it is the first portion of the song you hear. It is repeated, so you would put down two “A’s”.
The Verse, “Dashing through the Snow, In a One Horse Open Sleigh” etc., would equal “B”, because it is the next portion of the song that has a different melody.
