Canon in C WAGOLL, used for GCSE Music

Canon in C WAGOLL, used for GCSE Music

This resource was made in MuseScore2 but for some reason TES won’t let me upload it in that format so here is the PDF version. This is a WAGOLL version of a Canon in C. It only uses 4 instruments, and acts as a guide to help students with one of their first composition attempts. I teach canon composition to my GCSE Y9 class as an easy way to encourage them to compose. It is also a useful way to teach them about chord structures and cadences.
