Starting Points HW2 (set Friday for TUESDAY 19th)
Do exercise B2 on the separate sheet of paper provided (Exercise B2). Please carefully note the following:
- All the notes must either be part of chord or if they are dissonances they must be standard embellishments as listed here and they must be labelled
- The second bar should be the same as the first other than any adaptations needed for it to fit with the new harmony
- You must include dynamics and articulation
Starting Points HW1 (set Wed/Thur for hand-in on FRIDAY)
Please complete all the exercises on the first FOUR pages of the starting points booklet (A1-A4). If you are struggling you must come to the workshop on Thursday at 11:25 in the Music Classroom rather than come on Friday having not completed the work.

Exercise A1 – in the second line of this you need to raise the seventh note of the scale (e.g. the G# below the tonic of A in the example completed for you)
Exercise A2 – done in class
Exercise A3 – shuffle the notes round so you get a triad in root position and all the notes as close together in a stack of thirds. Then look at the bottom note an work out which note of the scale it is so you can work out the Roman Numeral (1st note = I, 5th = V etc.)
Exercise A4 – this is slightly different. You need to work out the chord in root position first and the root will tell you the major or minor key – check the key signature to check you are correct.
