This portion of the process involves friendly, helpful, considerate peer review. If participating with a class, you will be assigned a peer review partner. If you are completing this as an independent study, enlist the help of someone whose opinions you trust. Ensure each partner has access to the melodic compositions at Noteflight.com, and download and print the Peer Review and Project Refinement worksheet found here. Spend some time enjoying each other's melodies. Listen several times, exploring how the composer used resources available at Noteflight to help create a melody suitable for the accepted (play-pretend!) commission. A thoughtful review process involving multiple hearings of the composition and reflective completion of the peer review portion of the worksheet should take close to the equivalent of one class period.
Once the peer review portion of the Peer Review and Project Refinement worksheet has been completed, return it to the composer. As composer, ponder with an open mind both the compliments and suggestions shared by your peer review partner. Complete the Composer portion of the worksheet detailing what changes you might make to your composition, and why you will make them. If you choose to make no changes, share the reasons informing that choice, as well. This is your composition. Any choice, thoughtfully and articulately considered, is correct.
Make the changes to your melody (or not!), and get ready to present in Task 8!
