I'm currently writing a short piece of music for a university assessment, and there are a number of conditions in place as far as what it must contain. About half of them I'm confident I can implement, but these I'm a little confused by:
- Tonicization by secondary dominant
- Modulation by direct, pivot chord, dominant chord or transitional
- Modal Interchange
I've started writing chords and melody in the key of D minor, any advice for me as far as adding in those techniques? Apologies if this is basic knowledge, theoretical songwriting is not at all my strong point - always been a by ear kind of musician.
