4) Interactive Lesson: Identify Triads Using Roman Numerals

Music Theory QuickThink: 

-          Identify the key

-          The root of the chord is associated with the scale degree number of the key. (Ex.  in the key of Bb Major , F is the 5th scale degree)

-           Convert the scale degree number to a roman numeral.  If the triad is major or augmented, write the roman number in upper case: If the triad is minor or diminished, write the roman numeral in lower case.  If the triad is augmented add a plus sign (+).  If the triad is diminished add a small circle sign (°)

-           Example: in the key of Bb Major, a g minor triad would be marked as vi

-           Expected Roman numerals for chords in a major key (without altering the key signature are…

I, ii, iii, IV, V, vi, vii °
