Question:

Correct this sentence grammatically for use in an essay: Her parents are the people she makes money for.

Inactive

Answer:

The correct way of phrasing this sentence is: "Her parents are the people for whom she makes money." This way the sentence does not end with a preposition. While ending a sentence with a preposition is not necessarily incorrect, it is not acceptable in formal settings such as an essay.

Question:

What is the difference between a major and minor triad.

Inactive
Sarah R.
Answer:

All triads are similar in that they are made up of three notes: the root, the third and the fifth of a key. Major triads however, include a major third above the root while minor triads use a minor third (a semitone lower than the major third) above the root. It is the third of a triad that gives the chord its traditional happy or sad sound. The major third in a major triad creates a very consonant, happy sounding chord, while the minor third in a minor triad gives this type of triad a more somber sound. Example: C major triad: C,E,G C minor triad: C, E-flat, G

Question:

How can you play a musical phrase with expression?

Answer:

Playing a musical phrase is much like speaking a sentence. When we speak we have a natural inflection in our voice. If we didn't have this inflection everyone would speak with a monotone which would be very boring to listen to. When we play a musical phrase we must avoid making it monotonous. Just like speaking a sentence in which certain words will be emphasized, playing a musical phrase requires some notes to be emphasized to create expression in the phrase. In this way, playing a piece of music is just like delivering a speech or reading a large dialogue.
