This powerpoint guide talks students through creating one bar of melody and then extending it into a 16 bar, and finally ABA or rondo form piece of music. Along the way it gives tips on developing melodic ideas, harmonising a melody (chords and cadences), accompaniment styles and more. This powerpoint can be taught from directly over a period of 3-4 composition lessons, but can also be worked from independently as a homework or independent composition task.
Also included in the download is a MIDI of the example composition for students to reference.
This works well for a GCSE rondo form composition, such as the 2018 Edexcel instrumental music brief, along with many others.
