If this is serious, we have serious problems. No need to appeal to Fux.

There are too many consonant melodic intervals. The F# in the cpt. (m. 2) should be an F-natural to fix this. Source: David Nicholls, "American Experimental Music 1890-1940" (Cambridge University Press, 1990), pp.90-92.

A private student submitted the attached 1st species exercise to me last week. He certainly didn't break any rules, but I'm tempted to grade him down because my ear tells me there is too much contrary motion.[cntrpt.png] Still I don't want to confuse him. I'm tutoring him & he will be starting college next year. He wants to major in theory. Can anyone give me some advice?
