CLASS RECORDINGS & STUDY MATERIALS
Below is the link to the recordings for America the Beautiful. Your part needs to be memorized by Friday, November 1st !!!
FLAT KEY SIGNATURES:
Locate the penultimate (second-to-last) flat, and that tells you the key.
Ex. if you see 4 flats, the 3rd flat tells you the key (you see Bb Eb Ab Db.... the key is Ab)
*the FIRST FLAT key is F!
SHARP KEY SIGNATURES:
Locate the last sharp, go up one step, and that tells you the key.
Ex. if the last flat is F#, the key is G; if the last sharp is A#, the key is B
** always read the sharps and flats in order from left to right - the same way you read text! **
