Thanks for saying that because I'm sure his words were 'what key does it modulate to" i assumed my teacher hadn't covered it and took a guess.
In lessons teacher just asked for dominant, subdominant etc

I think you can answer either way.

On no. I just said "e major". My teacher never called it modulation.

I think you can also name the key it modulates to.

Yes, you can do either. I believe you can also name the degree of the scale - IV, V etc. but don't quote me on that one. None of them help me, however, because although I can tell that the music has modulated, I'm never quite sure of the exact moment it does. I figured in the exam that whatever I said, I had a one in three chance of getting it right.

I have a Debut (ie Preparatory) piano exam tomorrow Wednesday.

 

I had a much more important examination last Saturday. Happily, that came through as all clear, so tomorrow's exam doesn't matter in the slightest.
