Music Fundamentals—Beckwith Exercises for Minor Mode These exercises will help give you a thorough understanding of the natural minor scale, its key signature, its relations to major scales and their key signatures, its variants, and their relations to minor key signatures. If at all possible, use a piano, electronic keyboard, or audible software so you can hear what the scales sound like. For each tonic given below: a. On the first staff, write whole notes on steps 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-1 of the scale indicated. Leave room for a potential accidental before each note. b. On the keyboard, write X on each key of the natural minor scale (W H W W H W W). c. Referring to the keyboard, add accidentals to the natural minor scale on the staff at left. d. Examine the accidentals you have used. On the second staff, organize them into standard order and position and write them as a key signature. Leave room for two before the bar line.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
