Homework ~ Music Notation: “The Silver Swan” by Orlando Gibbons

(This is posted to the 6th Grade QAS Music Page for the benefit of students who cannot log onto Google Classrooms. If this is you, please let me know so I can help you log onto Google Classroom. – Mr Bullock)

Like the previous assignment, on the music notation paper provided copy the “The Silver Swan” by Orlando Gibbons (see Mr Bullock for a copy of The Silver Swan sheet music). This is due Monday May 21  at the start of class — 12:30 PM.

Please remember that you are graded on how accurately and carefully all the notes are copied, and also the spaces in between the notes. Copy all the written elements — clefs, ties, slurs, etc (many we learned earlier this school year). If you see it, copy it. Copy them they appear in the example.

Do this lightly in pencil at first so you can be sure it’s right. Papers that are crumpled, drawn, etc have points deducted. It is important that we get in the habit of presenting our work neatly and professionally.

Next week we will use this homework assignment to review these musical notes and to listen to these compositions.

As always, if you have a question please contact me. I am here to help you do your best.
