Piano Power: Deceptive Cadences

Music would be pretty boring if did exactly what we expected it to do.
As it's name implies, the deceptive cadence adds an element of surprise
within a chord progression. The standard progression in Example
1 employs both I-IV-I, and I-V-I. In Example 2, the listener is thrown a curve when the first authentic cadence
(I-V-I) is replaced by a deceptive cadence (I-V-vi).
As an assignment,
<*> Listen to the following deceptive cadences.
There are two sets.
<*> Print out the file and practice playing them in all keys until it is easy
<*> Rewrite all of the cadences on a sheet of manuscript paper. As with languages,
the writing of music will enhance your ability to read it more easily.
