Other Work Samples for:

Ariel has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in representing musical ideas using graphic notation. There is a clear understanding of how graphic symbols represent sound, and an attempt has been made to graphically notate dynamics and pitch, but there is little evidence of layering, and the composition lacks a defined starting place. There is consistency in the chime bar pattern which unifies the piece and some good explanations in relation to tone colour, pitch and dynamics. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard at the end of Stage 3.
