Snow Work Thursday 1 March

Hello Everyone!

If you need to contact me with questions, etc, please message me on Twitter.

This snow is interfering with our revision schedule, so please make a start as follows:

AH – Finish those essays.  Unfortunately, I’m having trouble accessing my school email account at home, if you need to contact me with questions, etc, please message me on Twitter.

H/AH – If you spent time revising literacy yesterday, you should now start revising your listening units in chronological order.  Start by looking at the list of concepts on P2, highlight the concepts you are unsure of and use Music Concepts Revision tab to get to musicpedia.  Test yourself on each unit using the quizzes on musicpedia and Quizlet.

Once back in school, we will spend time on exam technique in certain questions, actively listening to music and thoroughly revising everything in a variety of ways.  Please, make a good start at home.

N5 – If you spent time revising literacy yesterday, you should now start revising your topics.  start with World Music, Scottish Music, Popular Music and then, the hardest and most recent one, Periods and Styles.

Start by looking at the list of concepts on P2, highlight the concepts you are unsure of and use Music Concepts Revision tab to get to musicpedia.  Test yourself on each unit using the quizzes on musicpedia and Quizlet.

Once back in school, we will spend time on exam technique in certain questions, actively listening to music and thoroughly revising everything in a variety of ways.  Please, make a good start at home.

Snow Day Work

Thank goodness we managed to get the  N5/H SQA practical exams completed yesterday! Well done for being ready extra early this year.:)

AH – get those essays done.  Email me – igsamoir@gordonschools.aberdeenshire.sch.uk – and I can check over your work.

N5/H – start revising for the final exam by looking at the literacy requirements.  Use your literacy workbooks – remember you need to know all levels which apply.  (Highers – N3,4,5,H).  Go through the relevant resources/links on the blog.

Once normal service resumes, please bring in a memory stick so that I can give you more revision resources.

 

 

Search for Talent!

The Tailormade’s managment company, in partnership with the global team behind some of the biggest acts in the music industry (One Direction, Little Mix, Olly Murs), are holding a rare open casting call for teens aged 14-18 that starts NOW!

Modest! Management are searching the UK for undiscovered singers and songwriters to be part of an incredible project in 2018. Ideally they are looking for young people who can sing AND play an instrument, but that’s not essential.

This first round of auditions is simple: you just need to send a link to a video (audio will be fine, if video isn’t possible) direct to the team at Modest. All of the details for doing so are on the attached flyer.

They are expecting a HUGE response, and encourage you to act quickly! 

Auditions close on 23rd April 2018. Please read the terms and conditions below, including parental consent forms for under 16s.
