  • Complete Review Task on Movement 4 by TUESDAY. BEFORE THE LESSON


Please submit the form on Google Classroom either filled in or scanned. You can EITHER submit your music electronically as scans on Google Classroom OR as a printed copy to me. You need not resubmit music that you are repeating but clearly indicate below whether or not the piece was in your initial performance. Deadline is the last Monday of this half term. The performances will be in the week beginning Monday 14th June.

Year 12 HW w/c 1st March


AoS A – Western Classical Tradition

Year 12 w/c 22nd February

Also, please make sure you have finished the homework from half term:

Year 12 HW (w/c 25th January)

  • 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)
