It's basically when you use a secondary dominant to "modulate" into another key in the middle of a song. Hehe, I could do a post for it...but I don't feel like spending an hour writing one up right now.

Ya, its just a key change mid song. Without getting too technical on ya, just use the circle of fiths. Just run along the cirlce till you get to the new key you want. I think one direction is better then the other, but I forget off hand. Both directions should work fine though.

It is not always a key change. Due to the close relation the notes in a scale which would have the tonic as a dominant 5th in another scale, in some cases you have composeres using notes outside of the scale they are not changing keys but by simply uses notes outside the scale due to the close relationship the tonic and the dominant 5th have.

Dude, what you said didn't make any sense. "Modulation" only occurs when you change keys. And in some cases you have composeres using notes outside of the scale they are not changing keys but by simply uses notes outside the scale due to the close relationship the tonic and the dominant 5th have. basically implied that composers use accidentals. Using accidentals isn't necessarily modulating.

I guess my music theory teacher has no clue what he is talking about and the text book we have in lying.

you're both right to a degree, using accidental isnt always modulation... sometimes it's just simple passing tones n' such... but when they're used heavily and in a certain way, it can be considered modulation... rather than simply changing the key signature, say, from A major with 3 #'s the composer might bring you into relative or parallel minor key(per se), rather than just writing in a new key signature, he'll simply use accidentals on the notes they apply to.
