Core & Elective Performance

Mid Band 6 Sample 1 – Examiner’s Annotations

Title: Love Me Like a Man
Composer: Bonnie Raitt
Instrument: Voice/guitar

The performance demonstrates a sound attempt to convey the expressive character and style of the song. There is effective use of dynamic contrast. Inconsistencies and unevenness in vocal quality and phrasing with some straining in the upper register and forced tonal qualities in the lower register.
