This question (and my attempted answer) is from a practise test booklet for the RCM Grade 8 Exam I'm going to take. I have a few questions regarding composing melodies and also cadences.
So in part b) it says to compose a contrasting period. Is my melody different enough from the first part? Also, is my melody acceptable?
A "stable scale degree" means a note that is in the triad of the chord, right?
My last question is: did I fill in the cadences correctly? I think they need to be in root position, so should I fix that? I mean, add the root note of the chord below the triads that aren't in root position?
General tips would be helpful too.
