There will only be one four measure example.  Four points in each measure, 2 for rhythm and 2 for notes.  Partial Credit may be given.

Examples may be in major or minor but will only come from the following keys:  B flat Major, F Major, C Major, G Major or D Major and the five relative minor keys of those five keys.

A starting pitch will be given (not tonality).  The student will have 20 seconds to study silently or they may auditate if they would like.  After the 20 seconds is over, a second starting pitch will be given and they will begin.  The judge will only judge what they hear after the study period and the second pitch.
