Year 13 Half Term Homework

There are three distinct things to do over half term:

  1. Complete the Poulenc introductory reading and listening work on Google Classroom
  2. Hand in your composition (by Wednesday in half term)
  3. Keep on revising Haydn, Essays and Debussy. Concentrate on your weak points. We will follow a revision schedule after half term, which I will share with you.

Year 12 Half Term Homework

We have a final starting points test on WEDNESDAY 3rd November. 

Make sure you complete the analysis assignments set here:

If you want to do some extra practice, you can revisit some of the earlier GC quizzes here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1p9KPCA0GDmn2dNvAxDQda9rn2zwdAd-c?usp=sharing

In the test there will be:

  • Aural chords and cadences
  • Simple chord labelling
  • Analysis of key, embellishments and phrase structure in a short extract.
  • Four-part cadence completion
  • Writing simple embellishments above given harmonies

If you need any help COME TO THE WORKSHOP on Monday 1st November any time between 11.30 and 1.15

You also need to complete Composition Project 3 by the end of the first Monday back (again I can help in the workshop)

Both these are due WEDNESDAY 20th at 4.00 (I’ve given you a bit longer as college is closed on Monday)
