Student NotesLook at the figure above. If you see the dynamic markings with other lines next to it, the change should be gradual. The lines show you how long to make the transition from one dynamic marking to the next. In other words, how long to make the change from one volume level to the next volume level. These lines are called "crescendo" if you are growing louder or "decrescendo" if you are growing softer.

Note: If you are using a MIDI sound module or a sound card that recognizes "note velocity and volume information" you will be able to hear dynamic changes in any of the listening examples presented in these studies.
