GCSE coursework and listening exam
For your listening exam and your coursework AQA expect you to
be able to aurally detect 3 types of modulation:
1. Modulate to the Dominant – When a piece of music changes
to the key of the 5th chord.
2. Modulate to the Sub-Dominant - When a piece of music
changes to the key of the 4th chord.
3. Modulate to the Relative minor - When a piece of music
changes to the key of the 6th chord.
