Hi, I'm JT, a junior (11th year) full IB candidate in the US. I have one small question. For those doing Music Theory as their HL, what exactly is the final evaluation? Nobody can give a definate answer, since school hasn't begun here and the IB coordinator is, well, unresponsive. So uh, yeah. That'd be great if someone could help.

Hey,
I'm doing that too. We already started and its super fun, really.
Basically for the exam, you listen to a bunch of pieces, one from each era that we study ( Baroque, Romatic, Non Western etc.) and analyze it with snooty musical terms.
Hope that helps!

That's just standard level. higher level you need preformance and composition on tapes and your music paper comparing too different types of world music. the paper is also part of stndard level. The paper is okay as long as you find out what you should be discussing in it. I didn't finish my compostion on time becaue I didn't know about it so I failed. Make sure you know the prescribed work well and have your own copy to listen too, and a score to take notes in. Know where in the song to find different musical elements like if there's inversion or sequencing or a parody of another sng involved. stuff like that. The test is fun though. The deadlines for the paper and the tapes are the stressful part. Sorry that was long. Well goodluck and get help from your teacher early on with the composition pieces.

Oops, yeah I forgot about that, you have to preform too, and write...
Our teacher stresses the listening test though.
