You should now choose one of your developed ideas to turn into a completed composition using musical structures and you should consider the following:
song structure (12 bar blues, verse chorus etc)
effective use of repetition and contrast
pace e.g maintaining momentum
You must hand in completed compositions (audio/video recordings/ lyric sheets)
annotated notes/blog entries
Remember to justify how your song meets the brief.
