MMU AP Theory
Variation 1 for Into the West. I have decided to go with parallel minor for this variation, and it's still in the early stages.
Completed motive for Theme and Variations piece.
Very rough right now... having trouble with the harmony/cello line and am looking for specific help with that line (including help with composing for strings in general)
just a rough draft. I don't have too many ideas yet. I really enjoy working in different modes however I am unsure of what to do with this.
I am composing the piece for my Q3 composition assignment in AP Music theory, themes and variations. I chose the melody Tale as Old as time from Beauty and the Beast. I want the variations to have a big contrast from each other. I am also unsure about the Piano part at times because it doesn't always fit with the Piano part. However, I don't want the Piano to sound boring.
I don't really have a plan yet. Sorry! I'll edit this later! I'm just trying to write something simple (and playable) for viola. I'm hoping what I have right now will be easy to manipulate — ex. having it start on Bb, emphasizing or de-emphasizing dotted rhythms, or turning it into a round with other string instruments.
