    22.8 Practice Exercises

    Day One

    1.

    For each given key, list the five closely-related keys.

    1. d:
    2. D♭:
    3. f:

    Answer.

    2.

    For each progression, analyze the Roman numerals with lead-sheet symbols and specify the second key.

    PRAC-EXER-find-pivot-key2.svg

    Answer.

    3.

    For this excerpt from Beethoven's "Maigesang," do the following:

    • Analyze the harmonies with Roman numerals below and lead-sheet symbols above
    • Determine where the pivot chords occur and use a pivot bracket to show the Roman numerals in both keys (specify both keys)
    • Label cadences
    • Name the form of the excerpt

    Figure \(\PageIndex{1}\): Beethoven, Eight Songs, Op. 52, No. 4, "Maigesang" (1805)

    Answer.

    Day Two

    4.

    Borrowed Chord Modulation. List the closely related keys to the starting major key, then specify the parallel minor key and its closely related keys.

    PRAC-EXER-mod-par-minor-closely-related-keys.svg

    Answer.

    5.

    For each progression, analyze the Roman numerals with lead-sheet symbols and specify the second key.

    PRAC-EXER-mod-progs-w-chrom-pivots.svg

    Answer.

    Day Three

    6.

    Determining Diatonic Common Chords. For each of the two keys in each example, list the diatonic chords as lead-sheet symbols and as Roman numerals then circle those diatonic to both keys

    PRAC-EXER-mod-finding-dia-common-chords.svg

    Answer.

    7.

    Referring to the Harmonic Flowchart, fill in lead-sheet symbols, Roman numerals, and Harmonic Functions for the following example—be sure to put some of the chords in first inversion for variety; create a melody by adding embellishments (non-chord tones) and try to create repeating motives and/or subphrases; LSS stands for lead-sheet symbols, RN stands for Roman numerals, and HF stands for Harmonic Function

    PRAC-EXER-mod-compose-mod-e-to-b-v2.svg

    Answer.

    Day Four

    8.

    List the four chromatic mediants for each chord.

    1. Fm:
    2. D♭:
    3. G:
    4. G♯m:

    Answer.

    Day Five

    9.

    Analyze with lead-sheet symbols, motives (with numbers, noting melodic alteration when it occurs), Roman numerals, and harmonic function.

    /
    Figure \(\PageIndex{2}\):

    Compose an eight-measure example using the motivic structure and harmonic function in the example above. Create a new melody with new motives but the same sequence of motives. You may use a different time signature, mode, and accompanimental texture.
