Question:

I am struggling to find peer reviewed articles on my topic, can you help me find these resources?

Answer:

For sure! To begin with, where have you been looking? Is your topic quite broad, or perhaps too narrow? One of the most important things you can do when you are struggling to find peer reviewed articles is to look at some background resources. SO in other words, find an scholarly encyclopedia entry or something similar about your topic. Then, read the entry looking for synonyms or other terms that are related to your topic. Then use these terms to broaden your search and engage in the scholarly conversation.

Question:

How do Augmented 6th chords typically resolve?

Answer:

The key for augmented 6th chords in all their forms is that they resolve outwards. So, the bottom note in the chord will resolve down by half-step and the upper note in the chord will resolve up by half step. The chord is usually in the pre-dominant position and then resolves to the dominant of a particular key. It heightens the tension leading to the dominant.

Question:

Whose music might be thought of as exemplifying classical period in western music and why?

Answer:

Both W.A. Mozart and Franz Haydn can be said to the most typical examples of the classic style. In many ways Haydn is the most typical while Mozart both uses and breaks convention. Our understanding of what the classical period in music is and means comes from studying the works of both of these composers. Certainly Haydn's symphony's and piano sonata's are often cited as prototypical examples of the different forms of the Classical Period including Sonata Form.
