Year 11 Mock Examinations

Year 11 Mocks begin on Monday 17th November for a full two-week cycle. Our expectation is that students will treat them as seriously as they would a real GCSE exam, as it is an important barometer of their progress towards success in summer 2015. In assembly this morning, all students were given a copy of the 2014 […]

Cantarla Concert at St. Andrew’s Church, Normanby

Thank you to everyone who sang or supported our concert at St Andrew’s Church, Normanby on Wednesday 15th October. The opportunity to use the organ to accompany several items, including solos sung by the choir members was exciting, and a new experience for some. The standard of singing and concentration from all the girls was […]

Most importantly […]

Well done today, particularly with your harmony work. As we get into it more, the rules that we develop become more flexible in their use. Remember to treat the leading note with care, and avoid parallel fifths where possible. We listened to Corelli’s Concerto Grosso no.4  in D, to compare it to the Bach piece […]

Well done today – more harmony! Working through the method sheet to help you write better harmony and eliminate errors will take a bit of practice, but if we keep trying one a week, then we will get there. Remember, when the question is marked /12, one mark costs you one A-Level grade, so attention […]

We’re starting to get into the nitty-gritty of some of the work, and this is where patience and perseverance is needed! Analysing and writing harmony requires you to know key signatures, understand triads, and begin to investigate what sevenths and suspensions are. All of this is a far cry from the basic knowledge required at […]

Well done today – three hours of hard work. The quality of the analysis of the Down Ampney harmony was generally very good. We discussed how suspensions, sevenths and modulations embellish the basic harmony, but also make it trickier to analyse. We then discussed how cadences are formed, and there was a cadence sheet to have a […]
