Does anyone have/know where I can find a list of all musical terms and descriptions needed for the last test in grade 8 aural?
Also, any tips for spotting modulations? I'm a bit confused because the syllabus makes it unclear what you may get asked. I know from major it can be relative minor, dominant minor, subdominant or dominant. But from minor, I'm unsure what I may be asked.
Thanks in advance
Do you have a copy of the Specimen Aural Tests book? It doesn't give a list of the terms you can use but in the back of the book there are suggestions for answers for the last test which will give you a good idea of what's required.
For the modulations of which there are two in the exam. For the one in a major key it'll modulate to dominant, subdominant or relative minor. For the minor key one it'll be dominant (major or minor, but you're only required to specify dominant), subdominant, and relative major.
I haven't tried the Survival books but they sound useful.
