Year 12 w/c 14th September

For Next Week (end of Monday 21st)

Google Classroom Exercises

Please complete 1f, 2a, 2b, 2c and 2d (click on links to go to the relevant exercises on Classroom)
These are all quite short – you may need to look at the help pages in the front of the Starting Points booklet to check chord types etc (or click for notes on intervals, chords/figured bass and embellishments). If you are struggling PLEASE come to a workshop or contact me in advance of the lesson. Workshops are 11.20 on Mondays and 1.30 on Wednesdays.

Composition

Write a two-bar basic idea. Please read these instructions carefully! Look at the help here if you need it. Please bring this to the lesson on TUESDAY.

Your two bars MUST:

  • Be in A major
  • Be written in a string quartet score with the melody in the first violin and root notes and Roman numeral chord labels in the cello (don’t write any other accompaniment).
  • Use I in first bar, V7 in second bar (be careful that you treat dissonances correctly and avoid the rogues!)
  • Should be different (unlike the last exercise)
  • Have a tempo marking
  • Include dynamics and articulation (particularly short slurs and staccato)

For Thursday (end of Wednesday 16th)

Composition

Please have another go at writing a B2 exercise (2-bar idea on page 16-17 of Starting Points Booklet). Make sure you follow the instructions carefully and that your second bar is genuinely based on your first!

Google Classroom Exercises

If you have not already please do the intervals exercise 1b and the diatonic chords 1d.
