December Tests Reflection

December Theory Test I was a little worried when this theory thing came along, I am grade 5 theory but I don't remember anything at all (most of it). Judging by the amount of time we had in class, there was no way I was going to remember everything I once knew. I don't think I did really well on this test because I didn't actually know everything on it. The timing for the test was a ...

Greatest Song Ever

Greatest Song Ever

  Reflection: Mr. O'toole wanted us to start on the composing unit and he introduced Finale 2012. He told us to copy this song ourselves and I was also told to write a reflection about using it.
