APOLOGIES The previous upload had some formatting issues caused when I exported from Keynote (Mac) to power point. Please get in touch with me if you need me to resend. dadamson@ntlworld.com This resource consists of six power points with annotated score and embedded audio extracts for each slide. The focus is on how the music elements are used in the set work, ‘Samba Em Preludio’. You will acquire the necessary subject specific terminology using the acronym R SMITH (Rhythm, Tempo and Metre - Structure - Melody - Instrumentation/Use of Technology - Texture - Harmony and Tonality) and the elements are dealt with one at a time (i.e. one element per power point). The score is annotated and because each slide has an accompanying audio, the aspect of the element being discussed can be instantly heard in action. Really helpful for delivery by a teacher, but also designed for my online course enabling independent study. www.medmusicservices.com

GCSE Music: Pathetique Sonata by Beethoven

(0)
This resource consists of six power points with annotated score and embedded audio extracts for each slide. The focus is on how the music elements are used in the set work, ‘Pathetique Sonata’ by Beethoven. Dynamics and Instrumentation Rhythm, Tempo and Metre Structure Melody Texture Harmony and Tonality I tend to use the acronym DR SMITH for my study guides although went a little out of order for this particular set work as I felt the instrumentation, structure and basically navigating your way through the various loops was helpful. The score is annotated and because each slide has an accompanying audio, the aspect of the element being discussed can be instantly heard in action. Really helpful for delivery by a teacher, but also designed for my online course enabling independent study. If you have any problems with this resource please contact me. They were created on a MacBook Pro using Keynote and have been converted for use on a PC as a power point. You may want the Keynote versions, so just let me know. www.medmusicservices.com

In the first slide I have also provided an overview of the Celtic, African and Electronic Dance Music performing forces with images plus links to recorded examples.
