Perfect Cadence
The dominant chord followed by the tonic chord which sounds like a full stop and gives a sense of completion.

Plagal Cadence
The subdominant chord followed by the tonic which sounds like a full stop but is not as strong as a perfect cadence.
8 of 11
Imperfect Cadence
Can be made up of any chord but normally uses chords I, II or IV followed by the dominant and acts as a musical comma.
9 of 11
Interrupted Cadence
Starts with chord V but instead of being followed by the expected tonic chord, it goes to the subdominant so gives a sense of surprise and acts as a comma.
10 of 11
Tierce de Picardie
When a piece in minor key ends on the tonic chord as expected but will be a tonic major chord instead of a tonic minor chord like the rest of the piece.
