Melody Assignment

This weekend's assignment is to construct an eight bar melody. Since there are a lot of parameters I thought I would post them here. Your melody:

1. should be written in C pentatonic. That is a C diatonic scale with the 4th and 7th taken out.
2. should have a range from middle C to the A above the treble staff.
3. should resolve to the home note.
4. should have an interesting rhythm that repeats but also has some variety. You can use any of the note or rest durations we have talked about in class, but you don't need to make it to complicated.
5. should have contour.
6. should be in 4/4 time.

Don't forget to retain a copy in your notes for continuing development. See you on Monday.
