ABOUT THIS COURSE

This NEW course is a practical course from which teachers can take away a range of effective approaches to composition to support GCSE students with minimal musical skills, including students who are unfamiliar with reading western staff notations, and help them create and develop convincing, coherent compositions

This course is excellent for teachers faced with this not unusual but very considerable challenge. Emphasis will also be on effective ways to use sequencing packages such as Garageband with students and how to access the higher grades. Consideration will also be given to students whose interests lie firmly outside Western Classical music, giving pointers as to how genres can be adapted so that the completed composition meets the marking criteria at a good level.
