Teacher guide Composing as inspired by Gordon Hamilton SNAP

TLF ID M024861

This set of resources focuses on composition. Students listen to and analyse the orchestral work, SNAP, by Australian composer Gordon Hamilton. They develop their own skills in composition and perform and record their own piece. A video features conductor Richard Gill AO exploring the work SNAP with musicians from the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. An audio recording of the piece as performed by the TSO is provided, and downloadable PDF resources include a Teacher Resource Booklet and a copy of the orchestral score. The resources are part of a larger collection, The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in your classroom – Insights into the workings of music with Richard Gill AO.
