Students have been studying music theory and listening skills related to composition this term.
We have looked at ear training exercises for students to recognise certain sounds and mood by ear. We have also worked on reading more advanced rhythms and music notation.
Students have used these skills to play various songs on Piano, Glockenspiels and Percussion. Nearer the end of term, students used these theory concepts to try and create their own melodies and patterns on various instruments and then wrote them in music notation. The main aim of the term was for students to develop their listening skills and start the basics of composing.
