Music History Review

This page is intended to give a quick overview of preparation for UWMs graduate music history diagnostic/comprehensive exams. It should also be helpful as a general review of Music History.

  1. Start General. Make sure you know what historical periods composers belong to. Chronological charts of periods and composers are useful for this.
  2. Get more specific. Focus on your weak areas.
  3. Find threads throughout the entire course of music history.
