Year 12 HW w/c 10 May

Essay or other format (due in next Wed / Thur)

Please either write an essay or do a poster/leaflet on the development of harmony and tonality that we covered in class


Before next week you need to

  • roughly complete your piece (i.e. ABCABA running continuously – the final ABA can be identical to the first)
  • put in any missing WCT – come to a workshop if you can’t manage this
  • fill in the log again including the first and second pages this time please


Year 12 HW w/c 30th April


The focus this week is on making sure you have the WCT features included in your piece. Please submit the appropriate log (LOG (Rondo) / LOG (Incidental) with the WCT features table filled in (including bar numbers so I can locate them)


Please write the following essay:

“Discuss the development of the finale in the symphony from 1750-1900”

Please note that in class we discussed the list on the topic notes for this and REMOVED J.C. Bach but ADDED Tchaikovsky 6.

Your essay should discuss some earlier examples then Haydn 104 in detail then some later examples.

Yr 12 HW w/c 23rd

The focus this week is on COMPOSITION.

You must have finished all the main sections to your piece (A, B and C) ready for hand in on Tuesday 1st / Wednesday 2nd on Moodle.

Remember your C section needs to be contrasting in key, texture and thematically. Look at models on A level music and Moodle to get ideas, but the main model is Haydn Symphony No. 2

Music: score

Another possible model is Bach Op. 18 No. 4



Year 12 Easter Work


  • You need to make notes on Topics B, C, D, F. This means copying the Topic Thread notes and then fleshing them out using the notes on Development of the Symphony on here. I will take this in on our first lesson back.
  • Please complete some quizzes on Moodle (one on each movement of the Haydn please and one Musical Theatre short answer)
  • Please listen to the last movement of the Haydn with the score

On Moodle you will find a Revision Booklet for the material you need to cover for the Internal Exam. You will receive hard copies of this at the beginning of term.
