DEFINITION OF CADENCE: Cadence can be defined as a progression of two chords that are played to give a logical end to a musical phrase or sentence.

TYPES OF CADENCE: They include:

  1. PERFECT CADENCE: A perfect cadence is from Dominant (V) to Tonic (I).This progression is called “FULL CLOSE” because it brings a feeling of finality or conclusion. It also serves as a kind of full stop.
  2. IMPERFECT CADENCE: Imperfect cadence is the progression from any chord to the Dominant (V).It is usually preceded by the tonic(I), supertonic (II), Subdominant (IV) or Submediant (VI).This progression is called “HALF CLOSE.”
  3. PLAGAL CADENCE:Plagal cadence is the progression from subdominant (IV) to tonic (I) or II to I, i.e. from super tonic to tonic.This progression serves as another kind of full stop or full close cadence. It is also called “AMEN CADENCE” because of its frequent use for this purpose.
  4. INTERRUPTED CADENCE: An interrupted cadence is only a cadence that requires a secondary triad or chord. Interrupted cadence progression is from Dominant (V) to Submediant (VI).It is also known as “SURPRISE CADENCE” or “FALSE CLOSE” because it creates an element of surprise.
