I would like you submit your compositions at some time between now and March 12th. It would be more convenient if they were spread out that all on the last day or this period (and you will get probably better and more timely feedback). Please could you indicate exactly what you have done BY ANNOTATING MY FEEDBACK on your log and posting the link as a comment on your submission. Submission on Google Classroom
Make sure you have finished work from last week (research task on Topic H (Drama and Narrative) and that you are ready for the Poulenc Test on Friday 5th

- Haydn 104 Movement 2 – Review 2 ( due Tuesday 23rd – please complete BEFORE the lesson)
- Finish off Composition Project (due Friday 26th – please read detailed instructions attached to assignment on Google Classroom)
- Complete the revision task on Google Classroom ready for the test on Thursday 28th
- Complete the initial research task for Topic F (Orchestration) on Google Classroom. Due Tuesday 2nd February.
- Complete your composition corrections and write a codetta (in the dominant). You should transpose it into the tonic for the coda and, if you want to be fancier, extend it. There are some notes on Codas at the bottom of this page There is then some more copying and pasting to make the recap. You need to copy and paste S1 at the end of your composition as it is. You need to rewrite your transition so it does NOT modulate. You then need to copy and paste S1 again to make the transposed S2, which is now the same as S1. A nice little extension would be to change S2 this time round to make the recap of it varied. (due Friday February 5th)
