Taylor has demonstrated a limited level of competence in representing musical ideas using graphic notation. There is no obvious starting point or direction to the composition as the symbols are isolated. The structure shows no layering of sounds, and there is little indication of rhythmic patterns and ideas. Only two of the four symbols representing sound have been explained, and the musical concepts have not been addressed in the explanation. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard at the end of Stage 3.
