All the responses I have received from my classmates are very useful for next time I make a sheet of music. I have gotten lots of people who are saying that I don’t need to change anything and people saying that I need to change small things. I am happy for the feedback I received and I think that with this feedback I can prove that I have done well this unit. This unit has actually been very fun, I have never done this before and especially not bluesy music. I am very happy on how my solo turned out. During this unit I have asked Mr. O’Toole for help and with that help I have improved my techniques in writing music. Overall, everything this unit has been a blast, I have been through ups and downs but in the end, everything as worth it. I hope I get to do this again in the future.
This is my new and improved solo, I used the feedback Aiden, Grace and Nicola gave me to produce a better solo. They told me to make some notes longer, and that the last note should sound more finished. I looked around a bit and changed a few notes. In my draft solo some notes just did not fit together, for instance; there was an E flat in the 6th measure and did not sound like it connected with the piece of music. I changed this into a D half note because I thought it sounded more jazzy and flowed well. Now that I have fixed up my solo a little bit, I think it sounds really good! Next time, I think I should practice more on playing my solo because than I would know if I could play it or not. That would also be putting some easier notes that I could play. I am very proud of this piece of music and I hope you like it too!
This is my solo I have created this unit. This is just a draft so I would like to receive some feedback on it so I can improve on my summative. I really like this and I hope I can make it sound even better than I think it is. Thank you!
Today we learned how to use Finale Notepad. This program is used for making sheets of music. Our job was to copy a sheet of music and we had to do it on Finale. This was quite challenging in the beginning but after a while I got the hang of it and finished. This was very interesting because I have never done this before and I would like to maybe make my own sheet of music in the future.
