Since Easter, we have been working on our own pieces of music. As the recordings come in they will be posted here so we can listen back.
Key word for our next project “DEVELOP”. How you can take a musical idea and vary it by changing or adapting the melody, texture, chords or rhythm?
A summary of targets
Hamish and Dan-think about how you can develop a melody or rhythm by changing it rather than just repeating it
Josh-try to use more layers in the piece to develop the ideas.
Aaron, Tyler, Will-very disappointing that despite having help that the school has paid for you were unable to produce a good quality recording. What I heard about some of the behaviour in languages yesterday when you were trying to get Will to the lesson has been less than impressive. Target has to be to consider why this is happening and to put it right. If not I won’t allow you to work together again
Sophie, Megan, Megan, Rosie, Gemma-belive that the skills you have on instruments are enough to create your own song and then do it!
Melissa, Kim, Abbie, Chloe-Unlucky today that you couldn’t perform. Target is similar to the last group, take the skills you have and use these to create your own music.
Morgan, Liam, Louis, Ross-this term you have had time to explore your own musical interests. Target-think about your group and how you will be able to use what you have have learned to create your own song. You can use Garage Band or instruments for this but you will need to be able to work as a group.
Megan and Jan-you met your target of cracking the impro so next it’s time to put everything together and think about how you can create a really ambitious piece of music that reflects everything you can so in music
Half term task: please answer these questions sensibly and honestly. Recordings from last lesson are below. Check your spelling, capital letters and punctuation before you press send. You might prefer to write your answers in Word first then copy and paste them over or email me the word document to firstname.lastname@example.org.
