9 UNIT TWO: COMPOSING AND APPRAISING MUSIC (20%) ASSESSMENT: submission of a score and sound source (i.e. CD) and completion of questions about the process and finished version in a booklet supplied by the board and a Candidate Record Sheet. All sent to the board and marked externally. Links to TWO OR MORE of the Areas of Study AoS 1 Rhythm and Metre AoS 2 Harmony and Tonality AoS 3 Texture and Melody AoS 4 Timbre and Dynamics AoS 5 Structure and Form Which must be linked to ONE of the three strands below (chosen by the Board) a.

10 How do pupils complete this work? Autumn Term up to half term: Pupils will need to complete some research and preparatory tasks related to the style of the piece. This will help them design a really good piece. This will involve personalised tasks related to their strengths involving the internet, work at home or in libraries. Half Term up to Easter: This must be completed in the classroom informally supervised by staff. Officially pupils are allowed 20 hours in lesson time to do this work. They cannot waste any time in lessons, as this will not create a composition that attracts high marks. This piece must be finished by Easter of Year 1 complete with score and CD of the sound. Pupils are not allowed to complete this composition outside school The Appraisal Booklet This needs to be filled in during lesson time under teacher supervision over two hours

11 UNIT THREE: PERFORMING MUSIC (40%) ASSESSED: SUBMISSION OF SCORES AND RECORDINGS OF PERFORMANCES INTERNALLY ASSESSED AND EXTERNALLY MODERATED Performance of TWO pieces. One solo and one ensemble piece. 1. Solo Piece This can be any one of the following Unaccompanied solo (where this is the intended nature of the piece, i.e. no playing without an accompaniment if there was one composed for it) An accompanied solo A performance where the candidate has a substantial part (if you are a band player or in a large ensemble you need to ensure you have the main part) Technology-based performance using a sequencer and/or multi-track recorder. At least one track must be a live performance recorded 2. Ensemble Piece Pupils must play a piece which has TWO or more live players. If pupils are in a large ensemble they must be clearly heard on the recording.

12 HOW WILL PUPILS BE PREPARED FOR THIS? Solo Piece: Normally pupils will have an instrumental (or vocal) tutor in school or outside school. It is preferable to have lessons in school so staff can monitor progress. Pupils will need to research some background to their performance pieces including research on their instrument and the style they are playing. They need to ensure they play a piece which shows their ability. They must not choose a piece just because it is simple to play. They have the advice of their instrumental tutor Ensemble Piece: The school runs various instrumental ensembles to support their learning. If they are not presently in a school ensemble, then it is vital they join one to help them with this element and to help them develop their listening and composing skills. There may not be an ensemble if the pupil is a drum-kit or band player or if they play an unusual instrument. In this case it is important they develop their own or join an ensemble outside school that would be prepared to come into school for the final recording at the end of the spring term in Year 2. What standard piece should pupils play? The highest expected standard is a Grade 5 piece. They may reach this standard by the end of the course, but if they do not, it is important they play pieces that reflect their skills to date. Both pieces will be recorded in Year 2 during the last week of the Spring Term.

13 UNIT FOUR: COMPOSING MUSIC (20%) ASSESSED: Submission of a score and a sound recording (i.e.cd, etc) and a Candidate Record Sheet. Internally marked and externally moderated. They must choose TWO OR MORE of the Areas of Study AoS 1 Rhythm and Metre AoS 2 Harmony and Tonality AoS 3 Texture and Melody AoS 4 Timbre and Dynamics AoS 5 Structure and Form This is a FREE STYLE composition, which means it is their choice, but must be DIFFERENT from Unit Two. They still need to link it to two or more areas listed above. How do they complete this work? Summer Term up to half term Year 1: They will need to complete some research and preparatory tasks related to the style of the piece. This will help them design a really good piece. This will involve personalised tasks related to their strengths involving the internet, work at home or in libraries. Autumn Term Year 2 up to half term: This must be completed in the classroom informally supervised by staff. Officially they are allowed 25 hours in lesson time to do this work. They cannot waste any time in lessons, as this will not create a composition

14 that attracts high marks. This piece must be finished by Spring Half Term of Year 2 complete with score and CD of the sound. PUPILS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO COMPLETE THIS COMPOSITION OUTSIDE SCHOOL
