AS final Starting Points homework for both groups Wed. 2nd

Please finish your entire quartet on Sibelius, complete with tempo marking, dynamics and articulation and with any corrections suggested and email it to Tom by the end of Wednesday (D group: I will give you feedback on your emailed compositions on Monday, so you should finish Exercise 16 over the weekend and then complete the rest of the task for the end of Wednesday).

I will take in Starting Points booklets for the final time on THURSDAY for both groups, so please make sure you bring them with you.

Workshop: 1.15 on Monday

AS (D) Homework

1) Complete Exercises 13 & 14 for Thursday’s lesson

2) I will return your quartet template in the lesson on Thursday. Please transfer this onto Sibelius by the time we have our lesson on Friday. There is a workshop 3.00-5.00 on Thursday, which would be a good opportunity to do this if you need the time on Sibelius.

AS (A) Homework for Thursday 26th

I will return your quartet work to you on Tuesday. Before Thursday’s, lesson I want you to have inputted all the work so far onto Sibelius and emailed it to me. If you haven’t finished this you will be required to stay for the composition workshops at 3.00 or 4.00 on Thursday. Make sure you include dynamics, articulation and appropriate tempo marking.
