Instructions for Composition Assignment:

Composition Assignment on Sibelius. Click here.

Follow the steps in order. 
Only concentrate on ONE thing at a time. One note, one Chord, one RN, one Chord Symbol, etc.

1. Build your chord matrix. Build each chord from the Root up and circle or underline the BASS note, which may or may NOT be the root.

2. Add Chord Symbols ( Control + K )  above each chord (above treble staff) as indicated in examples

3. Add Roman numeral analysis as indicated in examples

4. Compose your melody from notes in your matrix:

  • Your melody should move in mostly conjunct motion, making your melody “singable.”
  • Your melody should be moving in contrary motion to the bass line at LEAST 50% of the time.
  • Keep your soprano line on treble staff, from first line E to top line F. HOWEVER, try to keep your melody (the soprano line is the melody) range no larger than a 6th for this assignment.
  • If you use an interval larger than a 3rd, the next interval should be a second. Do not use consecutive intervals larger than a 3rd.

 

5. Compose the alto and tenor voices using static motion (keep the common tone) as often as possible, otherwise move to the next nearest chord tone. The range from Tenor to Alto and the range from Alto to Tenor must never be more than an octave.

6. Make sure you’ve composed the type of cadence indicated.

7. Use the Music Theory Quick Facts sheet!

8. Add non-harmonic tones to each example as instructed on the template. Each non-harmonic tone has a specific pattern / “formula.”

9. Use the Sibelius proofreading plug-in to check for Parallel P5s and P8s. If found, correct them.
