Student InstructionsRead through all the information given to you before starting work. Make sure you understand whatyou are being asked to do and that you know what level of performance is required for you to obtainAchievement, Achievement with Merit, or Achievement with Excellence for this assessment.The compositions will be completed by the date/s given to you by your teacher.1. In this assessment activity, you will compose two original compositions. Your may work either as an individual or in a group of 2-5 students. You may compose one piece as an individual and one as a member of a group, both pieces as an individual, or both pieces as a member of the same group or different groups2. Your compositions must show evidence of generation (creation) of musical ideas that are then developed, structured and represented. Generation, development, structure, and representation are defined as: Generation involves the creation of original musical ideas through using riffs, motifs, themes, chords, ostinato, use of tonal centre(s). Development refers to the way that music ideas are extended using compositional devices. These could include, but are not limited to, repetition, contrast, imitation, sequence, extension, variation. Structure refers to the way that ideas in pieces of music are organised or constructed into a cohesive and coherent composition e.g. verse/chorus, ABA, harmonic logic, unity and contrast. Representation refers to conveying the intention of the pieces through audio and written formats appropriate to the style/genre e.g. standard music notation, lyric and chord chart, lead sheet, tab, graphic notation, narrative description, or a combination of these.3. For Achievement with Merit, your compositions will be effective, which means that the musical ideas are developed, structured, and represented coherently and the music demonstrates control of style. For Achievement with Excellence your compositions will be convincing, which means that the musical ideas are developed, structured and represented skilfully, and the music is stylistically assured.4. Submit your composition work in a portfolio, including any rough drafts along with your finished work. If you have been working in a group you should keep a diary of the process to show how you have made a contribution to the composition. Your teacher will observe your group working and will talk to you about the group process.
