Hi,
We don't have the best teacher for Music, and I can do the other sections of the paper, apart from the perception of tonality and harmony question. How can improve my skills for this? My teacher just tells me to guess. I just find it really hard, as it goes so quickly usually!

The best thing to do is to sit at a piano and play the principal chords over and over until you get a feel for what they sound like.
(also, Dominant is the answer)

The aural tests for Grade 8 ABRSM are very helpful with this IMO. You could probably go over some with your instrumental teacher(s) even if you haven't taken that exam before.

But not as fun as harmonising Bach Chorale melodies. Nothing beats that...not even AS level maths exercises :P

Totally agree. Chorale harmonisation is ten times as fun!
