b. Choose one work/composition presented at the workshop that you are interested in teaching to your students. Study the score of your chosen work, and provide a typed analysis (brief, to include information regarding form, key relationships, texture, and other components normally present in an analysis). There are works of high quality at every level of music instruction. Music for the less experienced may lack the depth of complexity and subtlety of higher level compositions, but there exist well-crafted musical creations at every level. Please be certain to choose a work that has a substantial degree of depth and creative/artistic value. If your composition is lacking in substantial depth due to its intended instructional level, please choose two or three more simple/short compositions instead of one.

N.B.: Your score study of the chosen section/composition should be evident in your presentation strategies of this lesson plan. Please submit a score or copy of score with your lesson plan!!
