Title of the resource – BTEC Music Unit 4 Introducing Composition: Horror Music

Description of the resource

The author uses the interactive Nearpod platform to show how musical elements can be used effectively to create horror music. Learners are encouraged to respond to prompt questions and a series of video clips, to show their understanding of articulated sounds and dynamics and to use sampled sounds in their compositions.  This structured approach leads to a final open ended question. The author suggests that students should have the theoretical knowledge beforehand so that they can then apply it in a practical way.
