Year 10: Note Pattern

The Rules:

You must play the pattern through once in its entirety (with an interesting rhythm of course)!

After this you can start to develop a short piece based around this pattern. You can add/change notes at this point.

It should be for a solo instrument.

It should be good.

Berlin 2013 Update

It was absolutely thrilling to discover that 62 of you would like to come on the Music Tour to Berlin in Feb 2013.  As you know, the original limit was 50 students.  I am now, however, investigating the possibility of a bigger coach but I don't want it to affect the cost too much.  We will find out by the end of the week if we can accommodate all of you, but if not, we will have to allocate places by lottery, with those missing the deadline forfeiting their place in the lottery.  
Fingers crossed and watch this space!
