AS (A) Homework for Thursday Sept. 19th

Complete Exercise 10, following the instructions carefully.

  • Remember that the circle of fifths goes from I down in fifths (I-IV-vii-iii etc.)
  • The sequence should be exact – so the second and third bars should be identical to the first other than being transposed down a step
  • Put in a bass line and melody – try to avoid parallel fifths and octaves (some of your bass notes might be the third of the chord – i.e. a first inversion – to avoid this)
