Year 12 HW w/c 18th September

Complete Basic Idea sheet either for the lesson on Wednesday / Thursday


  1. First two bars are ALL chord (twice as long as last time)
  2. Second two bars are ALL chord IV or and must be the same as bars 1-2 but adapted for the chord

In order to write the first TWO bars follow these instructions and THEN write the second two bars. Ignore the chord just stick to I for the first two bars

Year 12 Homework w/c 11th September

Starting Points HW2 (set Friday for TUESDAY 19th)

Do exercise B2 on the separate sheet of paper provided (Exercise B2). Please carefully note the following:

  1. All the notes must either be part of chord or if they are dissonances they must be standard embellishments as listed here and they must be labelled
  2. The second bar should be the same as the first other than any adaptations needed for it to fit with the new harmony
  3. You must include dynamics and articulation


Starting Points HW1 (set Wed/Thur for hand-in on FRIDAY)

Please complete all the exercises on the first FOUR pages of the starting points booklet (A1-A4). If you are struggling you must come to the workshop on Thursday at 11:25 in the Music Classroom rather than come on Friday having not completed the work.

Help on chords and inversions, figured bass can be found on this website by clicking on the links


Exercise A1 – in the second line of this you need to raise the seventh note of the scale (e.g. the G# below the tonic of A in the example completed for you)

Exercise A2 – done in class

Exercise A3 – shuffle the notes round so you get a triad in root position and all the notes as close together in a stack of thirds. Then look at the bottom note an work out which note of the scale it is so you can work out the Roman Numeral (1st note = I, 5th = V etc.)

Exercise A4 – this is slightly different. You need to work out the chord in root position first and the root will tell you the major or minor key – check the key signature to check you are correct.


Homework w/c 4th Sept.

No homework as such but you need to get organised!

Have you done the summer tasks (see below)?

Apart from that:

  • Show your parents the letter given out in class and bring back payment for the scores, buy the study guide, make sure they have concerts in diary [copy of letter]
  • Buy a ring binder for music (don’t put all your subjects together, there is too much to put it all in one folder)
  • Order tickets for the concert trips to CBSO: Letter / Permission form
  • Make sure have organized instrumental/vocal lessons (yr 12 lesson request)
  • If you are not confident on keys and chords – have a little HERE  before your first lesson next week
