One of the first introductions we get to music is while we're in the womb. Many mothers-to-be believe that listening to Mozart will help improve the intelligence of their growing babies. However, this was proven to be false by a team from Vienna. Once the baby was born, however, there was a different outcome. At three months old, babies could listen to the complex structures of music and then recognize if they've heard them before.
For some, music is something you play in the background while you work, exercise, or drive from point A to point B. Then there are music lovers who eat, breathe, and sleep music. We're guessing that you fall into the second category. While it seems that music floods the populace through radio and film, it is in elementary school where students are first introduced to musical theory and the elements of what makes music a universal language, including structure, instruments, and the components that makes music what it is.
So, do you remember what your music teacher taught you many years ago, or are you going need a refresher course? One way to find out is to take this quiz.
