Core & Elective Performance

Band 2/3 Sample 1 – Examiner’s Annotations

Title: The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Instrument: Voice/keyboard

The performance demonstrates some basic technical skill. There are intonation inconsistencies in the vocal line and the melodic line provided by the right hand on the keyboard is rhythmically uneven. The vocal phrasing is distorted and disjointed at times. The performance demonstrates inconsistent stylistic understanding.
