Composing a melody - guide to writing one bar and turning it into a whole piece!

Composing a melody - guide to writing one bar and turning it into a whole piece!

This powerpoint guide talks students through creating one bar of melody and then extending it into a 16 bar, and finally ABA or rondo form piece of music. Along the way it gives tips on developing melodic ideas, harmonising a melody (chords and cadences), accompaniment styles and more. This powerpoint can be taught from directly over a period of 3-4 composition lessons, but can also be worked from independently as a homework or independent composition task. Also included in the download is a MIDI of the example composition for students to reference. This works well for a GCSE rondo form composition, such as the 2018 Edexcel instrumental music brief, along with many others.

Beethoven's (Slightly Higher and Easier) 5th Symphony

Beethoven's (Slightly Higher and Easier) 5th Symphony

This was designed for my very able Year 6 class, although this is probably a Key Stage 3 - 4 activity. It is a simplified and shorter Orff arrangement of the first movement of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony with a few extra instruments that the children play. If you would like to see the Musescore file it can be found here

Music for a While Purcell differentiated revision grid (Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Music)

Music for a While Purcell differentiated revision grid (Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Music)

This revision grid for “Music For A While” by Purcell contains all the key information specified by the exam board condensed into easily understandable “student speak” lists, with key information highlighted in bold. The information has also been separated into the “essential for all” basic facts in green, the more detailed info in blue and the high level “icing on the cake” stuff in pink. I find that this helps to direct students revision - for lower ability pupils it helps to say “just focus on the green, then work on the blue” to make the information seem more accessible. For higher ability pupils it helps prioritise their revision into what is the most crucial information to tackle before the higher level detail.
