Please keep playing and practicing, enjoy your music. Use the materials that were last set by your teacher, you can add to this by looking on the internet for other pieces (there is a lot available for free). If you have a theory book keep working through this, I am available to help if you get stuck just email me fiona.baglin@maelorschool.org.uk

Please look at the class page on Google Classroom, during term 3 we will be working on finishing our Ensemble unit work and them moving on to the film music unit. Mr Griffiths (IT) has now secured temporary Sibelius access for you all, I will send you an email with how to activate this asap.

 

 

 

Year 11

 

As you have heard there will be no exams for you, THERE IS NO NEED FOR YOU TO COMPLETE ANY FURTHER WORK, I appreciate the effort and hard work you have put in over the past two years. If you intend to do music at post 16, please sign up to the new google classroom, please refer to the subjects-information page for further details. If you have a certificate from ABRSM, TCL, RockSchool, LCMM or Guildhall for your highest instrument or voice grade and are able to scan/ take a photo of it and send it to me, this may also be useful as evidence.

 

Learning is a lifelong process and the skills you have gained can stay with you forever, whether or not you choose to pursue music further you have a skill you can use throughout your life, music is something that can bring you joy at any time. I hope to see a number of you back for A-level but I urge you all to keep playing and enjoying music, in whatever form or genre.
