Studying for Graduate Level Music History Exams
It is that time of year! If you are a senior applying to graduate programs in music, you are starting to hear about auditions, interviews, and entrance examinations for those universities. The Maxwell Music Library has several resources that will help you in your preparation.
If you have more than a week, you should flip back through the texts of your textbook, but also take a look at what if fondly just known as "Grout." This is the text most music schools traditionally use. The music librarian just might have a copy of the 8th edition in her office that can also be borrowed.
