Composing Music using Drones and Pedal Notes
I begin the project as an introduction to composing using simple devices like the Drone, Pedal and Ostinato. It is done just before Christmas as it is a good way of enjoying the Christmas season while doing some serious work.\nCarol of the Drum, although simple, needs a lot of concentration to remember when to change pedal notes and the melody itself is diffiuclt to count.\nI use Let Me Entertain You and Scotland the Brave as an introduction to the topic.
