These questions are prepared for the upcoming Grade 8 Aural Training iPhone Application Program. Now they are published here for students’ practice at home to improve their musical aural ability. More will be uploaded soon.
這些問題都是為將來的8級聽力訓練iPhone應用程序作準備。現在,我把問題放在這裡給學生練習,以改善他們的音樂聽力能力。

Instruction for Students: Write down your answers on a sheet of paper. You will keep it to yourself and check your answers against the correct one (which will be published later in another post here). You can listen to each question as many times as you need to. And if you don’t see all the sound files, reload the page again. Each question should have three parts (and you only have to listen to two).

Reminder: Perfect Cadence: V-I (dominant – tonic); Imperfect Cadence: I/II/IV/VI- V; Plagal Cadence: IV-I (subdominant – tonic); Interrupted Cadence: V-VI (dominant-submediant)
