know that music is divided up into bars and you have a certain
number of bars in each phrase. Phrasing is the thing that helps
music 'breathe'. At the end of each phrase we have what is called
a cadence - normally the final 2 notes of each phrase.
In this section, you will be tested on all four main cadences- perfect, plagal, imperfect and interrupted. The questions are selected at random and can be in any key. In each of the recorded examples, you will be given the root chord before the cadence is played.

Use the following table and notes to help you recognise the cadence:
