Singing Theory with B. – 04.10.16

Today we planned to write our first song with the information that we have all gathered together with individual research.

We talked about the ways that B looks at sections and songs…etc when she is writing a new musical. She told us that she uses different colour post it notes to write down specific songs and scenes that she wants to include and then she groups them and puts them in an order. So, we took her advice and she helped us put our song together. Here is a picture of the list that we came up with.

The structure in written form:

  1. Chorus
  2. Nero Rap
  3. Chorus
  4. Caeser Rap
  5. Chorus
  6. Roman Empire
  7. Chorus
  8. Bandit Verse
  9. Bandit Bridge
  10. Chorus
  11. Fear Section (Mine)
  12. Toads
  13. Chorus – Final


Here is a picture of what B does when she is writing a new musical and coming up with the structure: This is her story board

Here is a picture of the list of words that we came up with to help with the structure of the verses and the chorus before we started writing them:

This lesson really helped all of us on how to come up with structures for whenever we are next writing the next song or coming up with different ideas for a musical. I think this is really helpful for not only lesson topic and lessons but outside of college when I am writing a song for personal encouragement and pleasure.

Here is what I wrote for one of the verses: This verses will have trills to make it stand out from the other verses.

Sometimes I wonder why I am still here. Maybe it’s because of the fear I hold inside, that I couldn’t abide to let outside.

This was to see the depth behind the song. I wanted to make the song so that you can see the personal stories of the characters behind the main story of why they are there not only what they are doing there.



One thought on “Singing Theory with B. – 04.10.16”

  1. Jess, this is a good record of the session and contains a small amount of reflection on what you feel you have learnt and how you will be able to use it in the future, both personally and on the TiE commission. Try and have a similar amount of reflection to the amount of record that you have. In the final unit, reflection and evaluation is a large part of the grading and we are always looking for thorough evidence of this.
