AP Music Theory Summer Melodic Dictation Assignment
 
This assignment consists of 8 melodies; each melody is 4 measures long. The melodies begin easy and gradually become more difficult. Numbers 1 to 6 are required. Numbers 7 and 8 can be done for extra credit. You should do the assignment over a period of several weeks rather than all at once.
 
Directions: Listen to each melody and write the notes on the staff. The time signature, key signature, and first note of each exercise are given here. Print the page and use it to write your answers. If you are not able to print the page, you may write your answers on manuscript paper.
 
You may listen to each melody as many times as you need to. If you need to, you may use a keyboard to pick out the notes of the melody.
