Transcript of Modulations

Modulation Common Chord Utilizes a chord shared between two keys to modulate from one to the other. Create a chart to determine which chords are shared between two keys Step 1. Pick one of the common chords to become the "Pivot Chord" Step 2. Write a short progression in the first key, establishing the first tonality with at least one cadence. End with the Pivot Chord. Step 3. Direct Jump directly from one key to another, often abruptly. Write a phrase in one key. Step 1. Move directly to the next key without attempting to seam them together. Step 2. "Common"
Modulations Utilize shared materials between two keys Other
Modulations Continue from the Pivot Chord in the new key. Establish the new key with a cadence. Step 4. Common Tone Utilizes a note (tone) shared between two keys to modulate from one key to the next. Step 1. Step 2. End the first key with a chord featuring one of the "Common Tones" Step 3. Hold out the common tone on its own for at least one beat. Step 4. To Analyze Common Chord Modulations: 1. Look and/or listen for the first chord that seems to function more naturally in the 2nd key than in the first key. 2. Move back one chord, looking for a potential Pivot Chord. Analyze the available notes in two keys for common tones. Write a short progression in the first key, establishing the first tonality with at least one cadence. Continue in the new key, beginning with a chord featuring the common tone. Step 5. To Analyze Common Tone Modulations: 1. Look for the isolated, held tone. Closely Related = separated by no more than 1 accidental. Most Common Chord Modulations are between two "Closely Related"keys. A prolonged shift from one tonic to another within a piece Only considered a modulation if the TONIC NOTE changes.* Is changing from Major to minor a modulation? If the major and minor keys do not have the same tonic, then it is considered a modulation If the major and minor keys share the same tonic, then it is considered a change of mode, not a modulation. * Common chord modulations are labeled by highlighting the shared chord.
