There is a video and framework linked to in this task on Google Classroom. Remember there are also some notes on essay topics relating to Haydn 104 in the new essay booklet issued earlier this term
  • Keep your hand in on your instrument and on the pieces you will play for the exam

If you are at a loose end, here are some other things you could do:

  • Have a go at some ideas for your free composition (which can be anything you like)
  • Review the Debussy
  • Review the AoS E Core Wider Listening Webern and Ravel pieces.

Next steps might be …

  • adding a D section
  • making some small changes to the reprise of the ABA (after the C section)
