    Minor melody???? Lode

    How do I compose a 16 bar minor melody?? I have no problems with major and modulation but I have no idea what I'm going to do if minor comes up, can anyone explain properly, please?? I can't find anything online

      La is do, ti is re, do is mi, etc, it's the exact same from there and you don't have to modulate.

      what do you do instead of modulating though? do you just do an imperfect cadence ?

      You can modulate to the major key

      and then do you just continue in major then ?

      For minor it's actually easier , you don't have to modulate just use an imperfect cadence

      No just bars seven and 8 you modulate to a major key, then go straight back to a minor tonality in bar 9 . You don't have too though you could just do another imperfect cadence instead if it's easier
