Theory I—Review Sheet for the Final Examination Chapter 1—All of this should be completely familiar by now. Don’t spend time studying the octave designations because they will not be asked about on the final examination. Be sure to review the scales and intervals . Remember that you will be asked to label half-steps when writing the scales, and that you need to know the half-step formulas for all the scales. Major scale: half-steps ^3-^4 and ^7-^8 Pure minor: half-steps ^2-^3 and ^5-^6 Harmonic minor: half-steps ^2 - ^3 , ^5 - ^6 , and ^7 - ^8 with an augmented second between ^6 and ^7 . Melodic minor: half-steps ^2 -^ 3 and ^7 - ^8 ascending but ^6 - ^5 and ^3 - ^2 descending Chapter 2—Don’t forget to study Chapter 2 (rhythm). Be sure you understand meter, including compound meter. It is easy to forget about this chapter because we really haven’t dealt with rhythm since discussing Chapter 2 except in sight singing. Chapter 3—Triads: major, minor, augmented, and diminished By thirds working upward: M-m, m-M, M-M, m-m Seventh chords: Major seventh (M-m-M), Major-minor seventh (M-m-m), minor seventh (m-M-m), half-diminished seventh (m-m-M), diminished seventh (m-m-m) The first inversion triad is designated by a 6 (third of chord in the bass). The second inversion triad is designated by a @ (fifth of chord in the bass).
