Cadences: The End Is Nigh

Hi! Cadences! Phrases! Endings! Exercises! Put your answers in the comments below or on the video!

1) Identify the following cadences. Remember to look at the key signature. (I gave you the first couple keys. And I was nice and made them all major, but these are equally valid in minor.)

2) Let's look at perfect authentic cadences. Below are some 4-part examples of authentic cadences, Tell me if they're perfect. If you can't read music that may be tricky, but there should still be some hints you can grab on to. Give it a shot!

3) Finally, let's cover phrases. What are your thoughts on the antecedent/consequent model? What are some ways you can think of besides harmony to create that effect? Listen to some songs you enjoy and see if they follow that dynamic. If so, how? If not, why not?

And that's cadences! We'll see you next time!
