All GCSE music specifications require students to have a comprehensive knowledge of a variety of different melodic devices, with many courses requiring students to be able to demonstrate this knowledge in both composition coursework and in the appraising exam.

This pack of 8 worksheets introduces a wide range of these devices, and includes two short composition tasks that give students an opportunity to practice using these devices before beginning their composition coursework or while preparing for the exam. Each of the worksheets that introduce new keywords come in two variants: one that has the definitions already provided, giving a useful reference or revision sheet; and one that provides a blank space for the student to write a definition for themselves. Where appropriate, each keyword is accompanied by a short musical example.

Here is a breakdown of each worksheet:
– Worksheet 1.1: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with definitions provided;
– Worksheet 1.2: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with space for students to research and write their own definition;
– Worksheet 1.3: A follow-up composition task, using the melodic devices covered in Worksheets 1.1 and 1.2;
– Worksheet 2.1: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with specific focus on devices that can be used in motivic development;
– Worksheet 2.1: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with specific focus on devices that can be used in motivic development, with definitions provided;
– Worksheet 2.2: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with specific focus on devices that can be used in motivic development, with space for students to research and write their own definition;
– Worksheet 2.3: A follow-up composition task, using the melodic devices covered in Worksheets 2.1 and 2.2;
– Worksheet 3.1: Introduction to a range of additional melodic keywords not previously covered, with definitions provided;
– Worksheet 3.2: Introduction to a range of additional melodic keywords not previously covered, with space for students to research and write their own definition.

Previews of the first page of each worksheet are available from the files list.

Throughout the worksheets, the following keywords are covered: Conjunct, disjunct, scalic, triadic, passing note, broken chord, ornament, trill, acciaccatura, appoggiatura, sequence, augmentation, diminution, retrograde, glissando, melisma, blue notes, diatonic, chromatic, riff, ostinato, inversion, hook, articulation, improvisation, legato, staccato, and marcato.

It is the responsibility of the teacher to check this coverage of keywords against the exam board specification, this worksheet pack does not intend to offer complete coverage for all specifications.
