(musicComp1) 4 melodies, with prompts

Due Friday 3/1 (both classes, before you leave for spring break!)

Compose four melodies, two to three phrases long, using the following prompts:

  • frenzied
  • serene
  • searching/questioning
  • M/F: adventuresome, T/R: foreboding

The melodies should be for specific instruments, and should include at least two for an instrument family (woodwinds, string, brass) different from the one used for your most recent composition. These melodies will not be performed in class – you do not have to bring in performers.

Label the melodies clearly with the corresponding prompt, and as always, include tempo markings, articulations, and dynamics.
