A good lesson today, focusing on composition to begin with, followed by listening. Start to think more carefully about which of this year’s composition tasks you are going to attempt. There is the opportunity for a local orchestra to perform your pieces, particularly if you are interested in the film task, A River’s Journey. It was […]

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.
