Music is an integral part of anyones identity. Music has been a part of our society for hundreds of years. Music has the power to lift your mood, bring back memories, spark nostalgia, bring you back to the good old days, relieve anxiety, improve your mood, fight depression, make you smile, bring people together, send a message, and so much more.

This fun musical quiz will ask you all about the basic tenets of music, and we are not just talking about naming an artist or finishing a popular lyric - anyone can do that! But only a real music connoisseur knows things like “When a major interval is raised by half a step, is becomes diminished. True or false?”, “Define an interval”, “Which of the following scales has a sad feel when all notes are played in order?”, “How many sharps are in the key of G Major?”, “Which of the following notes comes next on the lines of the treble clef? E G B…”, “How many beats are there in a quarter rest?” and more.

As you can see, you really have to know your stuff to be able to define all of these terms like clef, notes, treble, interval, beats, treble clef, bass, bass clef, g major, f major, all the majors. If you studied music at any point in your life you could definitely pass this quiz if you really think hard. Once you ace this quiz (cause we know you will), you should definitely share it with your friends, classmates, or any one that appreciates the beauty of music like you do.

Not only do you understand the beauty of music, but you are also an expert on the science and mechanics behind the music. You know that putting notes together is more than just based on how it sounds - certain notes placed together can cause certain feelings. A melancholy note string will make one feel sad, a different range of notes can make someone feel angry, or excited, or nervous. You know that music is more than just notes. It has the power to sway someones inner feelings and emotions and that is what has always drawn you to music.
