Another fun week of AP Music Theory gone and away, sigh. This week, we continued our study of our textbook’s chapter 4, “Chords”. One of our assignments to “re-re-read” the chapter, it was clear that this was important stuff we can’t miss. We discussed more about roman numeral analysis, which I feel very confident about especially after analyzing Continue reading
