Year 12 homework (set Friday 29th April)

Rondo Final Review
Due to delays in getting your work back this week (plus concert and bank holiday) I am extending the final deadline for the Rondo until Friday 13th May (at the end of the half-week of exams). Next Friday (6th May) I will take in all work for a final review before this deadline.

Next steps might be …

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

For most of you some of the following are things that you need to consider:
