This term we were meant to be working on our composition skills in school. Although it will be different, we are going to do it from home. This is actually a really exciting opportunity to use technology which we wouldn't have access to in school so I hope you enjoy it. Your teachers are looking forward to hearing the amazing things you come up with.
This project is going to be part of your Friday remote learning for the next few weeks, but you might want to spend some extra time in the afternoons throughout the week working on your composition, exploring different ideas or technologies.
Today you will be learning about some of the 'inter-related dimensions of music'. This is just a fancy way of saying 'the things that music is made up of', like building blocks. Keep an eye out for any of the famous composers we studied last term in some of the videos!
1. One at a time, click on the links below. Make sure to start with Video 1 first and work in order.
* You must watch the cartoon video at the top of each page.
* If you would like to, you can also scroll down to read the extra information and/or watch the other video on each page.
2. Click on the 'Chromelab' link and explore the different apps on there. You can save what you have worked on if you would like, but this is not essential.
3. If you would like an extra challenge, click on the 'Peter and the Wolf' link. Listen to the start, when they introduce each character, and think about how the composer has used the inter-related dimensions of music to help represent each one.
