1 to 5 and 5 to 1 Dictation Theory Things   William Wieland
Do your own work.
  1. Without producing a sound, hear the following excerpts in your head.
  2. On a blank sheet of paper, write the title and dictate the number of pitches indicated (or more) using numbers or syllables.
  3. Next, dictate the rhythm above the numbers or syllables and include a time signature and barlines.
(If possible, replace 2. and 3. with, "Transcribe the entire melody onto a staff using an appropriate time signature and a key signature of your choice.")

Twinkle, Twinkle little Star first 7 notes
The Flinstones Theme first 6 notes
Here Comes the Bride first 8 notes
O Christmas Tree first 8 notes

One day I will hear everyone sing some of these excerpts from memory.
