I’m working on a Music question and need guidance to help me study.
A. Please transpose this melody (originally in C Major) into the following keys:
In treble clef in D major, B flat major
In bass clef in aa flat major, G major
B. On a separate page I would like to write the scales with Roman numerals and following triads and inversions:
Treble clef: E flat major (I, III, IV), B major (I, II, V)
Bass clef: A major (I, VI, VII)
*Please note that Roman numerals refer to the root notes (most important and lowest notes in a triad).
A triad is a three note chord, three notes apart. For example, C triad is CEG, D triad is DFA, etc.
*Inversions are formed by leaving the top two notes of the triad intact and moving the bottom note an octave (8 notes up): CEG (root position), EGC (1st inversion), GCE (2nd inversion).
Here are the steps you should take when transposing a piece in the different key–
1. Determine the key (at this point I will let you know the key);
2. Write the scale and numbers (Roman numerals). For example, in the key of C major C is I, D is II, E is III, F is IV, G is V, A is VI, and B is VII. In the key of F major F is I, G is II, etc, etc.
3. Assign the numbers to the melody according to the scale;
4. Write the new scale and numbers;
5. Transpose the original melody in the new key using the new scale and numbers.
