A resource that helps students understand passing notes, auxiliary notes, échapée notes, appoggiaturas, acciaccaturas and anticipations. It consists of a presentation which also guides students through a simple task (manuscript paper or Sibelius required) which allows for straightforward differentiation. There is also a listening test and accompanying worksheet as well as a clear and detailed mark scheme. This resource is essentially a short stand-alone unit that can be delivered over an hour or so that should leave students feeling very comfortable with the material covered. It targets Year 12 (1st year of 6th form) but can also be delivered to a GCSE set or music theory workshop. The files are self-explanatory but please keep 'audioForPresentation.mp3' in the same folder as 'presentation.pptx' to be able to play it from the PowerPoint.
