Year 9 have started a brand new unit this year that allows the boys to use different technology to compose music, arrange music or copy music. Each lesson the boys are using different techniques required to write music. They have been copying up different songs on to the software, each time getting progressively more difficult.
The software we are using is called Musescore and is free to download on any computer. It is a great way to compose and to improve on staff notation (note lengths, names and notes on the stave).
The boys were copying up Take on Me by A-Ha this week using two violins and a cello sound. See below work from T.Clarke (9A1) and N.Shaw (9A).
