This progression may use diatonic triads and sevenths in any inversion. It may also use secondary dominants, with or without sevenths, in any inversion.
  • Perform at sight rhythm pieces and patterns in simple meters that use a half note or an eighth note beat.
  • Perform at sight rhythm pieces and patterns in compound meters that use a dotted half note or dotted eighth note beat.
  • Perform at sight rhythm pieces and patterns in simple meters that create syncopation at the beat and divisional level.
  • Perform at sight rhythm pieces and patterns in compound meters that create syncopation.
  • Sing memorized melodies, melodic patterns and duets outlining diatonic descending fifths sequences using moveable-do solfege.
  • Sing memorized melodies, melodic patterns and duets with non-essential chromaticism, secondary function chromaticism and modulations to closely-related keys using moveable-do solfege.
  • Sing at sight melodies, melodic patterns and duets outlining diatonic descending fifths sequences using moveable-do solfege.
