• Relationships or patterns in the music,

Where necessary, provide examples (usually passages from the score) to
demonstrate, explain, or support your analysis.
Giving Examples from a Musical Score
All music examples given from a score must be numbered and referred to in your text as “see example 1” or “as seen in example 1.” The examples must always have captions either above or below them, and should include the example number, the composer, the title of the piece of music, and the measure(s) you are using, for example:
Example 1. J.S. Bach, French Suite no. 3, Menuet, mm. 1-2.
If the source of information you use throughout your paper does not vary from the first example (such as the composer or piece of music), you need not repeat theinformation in subsequent captions.
Also, all music examples should include clefs, key signatures, time signatures,and any indications of voices or instrumentation.
