Music

Below are two homework tasks to be completed this half term.   Class teachers may set homework in addition to this or homework tasks instead of this.  This will be made clear in lessons.  All homework is to be completed in homework books.

 

Subject: BTEC Music

Year Group 12

Deadline: ongoing

 

In order to prepare for your solo recital during the week beginning 16th June you must:

  • Stick to your rehearsal schedule, practicing 5 times per week
  • Attend your instrumental lesson every week
  • Complete your rehearsal journal every week.  This is to be handed in every Wednesday.

 

Use the information below to help you to complete your journal effectively.

 

All instrumental lesson times can be found on the notice board outside the Performing Arts Office.

 

 

Pass: Identify what you have done in your routine and how it has affected your technical skill.

Merit: Describe the practice exercises you used and how they led to improvement.

Distinction: Analysis of impact of practice exercises on progress.

 

Example

This week I was rehearsing ‘Forget You’ which I have been learning for a month. I practiced five times this week, once in my music lesson, twice during free periods and twice at home in the evenings.

Although I am confident with most of this piece, I have noticed that I often sing slightly out of tune at the end of the chorus.  In order to improve this section I just worked on that section, repeating it over and over again, slowing it down, speeding it up and recording myself and listening back until it sounded correct.    When I listened back to the recordings of myself, my awareness about which notes were out of tune was raised and I was able to identify which ones needed work.  If I had not listened back, I might have missed errors and not been able to improve them.  Once I had found the errors I worked on the small section over and over again so that I could correct just that section and ensure that I had the tuning absolutely correct without getting distracted by the rest of the song.  If I had been singing the whole way through the song, I would not have been able to make as much progress on that section.  My rehearsals this week mean that I am now confident singing the difficult section at the end of the chorus.  Although I couldn’t correct it immediately, regular practice throughout the week meant that it gradually improved.
