WCT AND AoS E Revision
- Write an essay on a topic of your choice, giving yourself just 40 minutes to handwrite it with no notes. You can revise it first, however.
- Complete a quiz on the Third Movement on Moodle
- ALSO please complete a quiz on the Debussy
Make sure there is real progress this week please – hand in on FRIDAY on Moodle
- Please complete at least one Haydn First movement quiz and at least one Haydn Second movement quiz (here)
- Please revise the WCT Topic threads for a spot test NEXT Monday ()
AoS E revision
Please use the annotated score on Moodle (Common Resources) to update and complete the annotations of your own score. I will check them next week in the lesson on THURSDAY.
Composition (due Wednesday 28th February)
Please fill out the relevant composition log (most of you are doing OPTION A). I have given guidance enclosed in brackets as shown <guidance> – this needs to be replaced with your text.
Area of Study E (due Thursday 1st February )
Please use the booklet plus the scores, notes and readings on Moodle to complete the following task.
Create your own revision booklet or series of posters that put the Core AoS E listening works (those in the paper booklet) in context and compare them in terms of STRUCTURE and HARMONY/TONALITY. The comparisons themselves would work well in some sort of visual format whether that be a table, spider diagram or whatever.
!!!Homework is COMPOSING!!!
I would like both of your pieces in on Moodle on Thursday 15th and a printed copy of the Composition 1 (WCT). In addition you must please fill out a cover sheet for both pieces of work and either print it off or attach it on Moodle. You can use this coversheet template if you wish or use your own, but it must explain the structure (including the narrative for any film scores) and mention main influences. If you want feedback in the meantime, please email me your file and questions.
WCT – due Monday 5th February
Please write an extended essay (i.e. longer than an exam essay – it can be a series of research notes, but must be properly written in proper sentences and with explanation etc.) on the topic of harmony and tonality in the development of the symphony. You should NOT talk about Haydn 104, but include the Mendelssohn.
The idea is for you comprehensively to refresh and update your knowledge of the symphony by going back to the Development of the Symphony notes using harmony and tonality as the focus.
Please make sure that focus on handing in your COMPOSITION TWO this week on Tuesday 30th
Please prepare for your mocks next week!
- Monday: Music Theatre Listening and Haydn Short Answer
- Wednesday: Into the Twentieth Century
- Thursday: Western Classical Tradition Essay
Please also hand in composition work, commenting what you have done to it in the online comments box.
