Triad Help Guide
Here is a pdf of Minuet in G. This needs to be graded ASAP.
Identify the following chords.
-Name the chord (i.e. C Major)
-Identify inversion (i.e. root position, first inversion, second inversion)
-Lebel each note of the chord
At the beginning of each week, you should create a big picture goal. This goal should be something that is attainable with one week of class time. Each day you will set a goal to help you reach your big picture, weekly goal. In addition to goal setting, you will list how and what you practiced and positives/negatives from that practice session, and finally, what you are going to work on the next time you sit down at the keyboard.
At the end of the week, you will turn in this practice log either electronically or a hard copy. Each day must be filled out completely to receive full credit.
Figure out the notes in the following Triads:
1. D Major 2. Ab Minor 3. Db Major 4. E Minor 5. C# Major
