Other Work Samples for:

Kendall has demonstrated a limited level of competence in organising musical ideas into a composition. The piece has a simple structure and makes limited use of instruments. The djembe drum has not been included, and the composition could be more clearly notated. There is a basic understanding of ostinato, but the composition would benefit from further development in dynamics, rhythm, tone colour and structure. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard at the end of Stage 3.
