Seussical: All the things you can think

Image
The Spotify tracks do not match up to the score, but some of these YouTube versions do. As we learn the big numbers, I will check these videos and if they match the score, I will then blog them. Please do not learn things from Spotify (although it is useful for getting an idea of each song).
Here is the opening number. Get ready for Monday!

Year 12: Homework 31/10

Hi!

Apologies for the delay.

You have two tasks to complete for me based around 'A Day In The Life'.

1. Map out the structure, with bar numbers, in terms of 'verse, chorus, bridge' etc.
2. Write of the chord progression, in Roman Numerals (I, ii, V, etc.) for bars 1-14 (a little less than originally planned).

Also, listen to the track, and the album if you can!

For Monday please.

Thanks,

Mr. Guinane
