This worksheet introduces the concept of the triad, how they are constructed from the notes of the scale, and how to label the chord and its inversion with roman numerals. The worksheet introduces each of these elements stage by stage with informative teaching sections, followed by related tasks to ensure understanding. It is ideal for use either in the classroom, or as a homework task.
The three tasks are:
– Task 1: To construct triads for each of degree of two major scales.
– Task 2: To label chords using roman numerals in two simple chord progressions in a major key.
– Task 3: To label a series of triads with the appropriate roman numeral and inversion in a major key.
Each of the tasks increases in difficulty, and depending on the ability and level of the class you may wish to omit some tasks from the exercise. For A Level classes, this worksheet serves as an introduction, but may need to be accompanied by more challenging tasks to meet the requirements of the specification.
