KEYBOARD SKILLS FINAL EXAM (Mon 12/3 & Tues 3/4)

Prepared Interpretation:

Minuet Gm or Minuet in Dm as a complete performance. Repeats should be modified in some way, reflecting your learning about NCTs and harmony.

Scales:

Your TAs will ask you to play one parallel motion scale and one converging/spreading motion scale, one of which will be major and the other minor. These will be drawn from keys learned so far:

Parallel motion (in steady, legato eighth-note feel): B minor, C minor, D minor, A major, F major, B major

Spreading/Converging motion:  G minor, C minor, F minor, E minor, B-flat major, A-flat major

Figured Bass: in F# minor (BLC).

REMINDER: 

no figure = 3 and (optional) 5 above bass, using unaltered notes of the scale

6 = 3 and 6 above bass, ” ” “ 

6/4 = 4 and 6 above bass, ” ” ” , always double the bass note.

4 = 4 and 5 (5 is not optional) above the bass, ” ” ”  (usually resolving to 3 where indicated)

7 = 7, (optional) 5, and 3 above bass, ” ” “ 

6/5 = 6, 5, and 3 above the bass, ” ” ” .

4/3 = 6, 4, and 3 above the bass, ” ” “

4/2 = 6, 4, and 2 above the hass, ” ” “

P = bass note not harmonized; it passes to or between other bass notes that function normally in the progression.
