A hop, skip and a jump!

This composition will explore arpeggios and chord progressions. Follow these guidelines to create this jumping rabbit tune:

*Compose this piece in Finale Notepad. You will email it to me as a Finale (.mus) file. (5 pts)
*The key signature is C Major (10 pts)
*Choose the best time signature for your piece(10 pts)
*Write out the ascending arpeggios for the following chord progression: I, vi, ii, V, I. (50 points)
These numbers refer to the step in the scale and its corresponding arpeggio/chord. For example, vi means 6, which is A in C Major. An A arpeggio uses the notes A, C, E and A. DO NOT add any accidentals.
*You want this piece to sound like a jumping rabbit. Choose your rhythms carefully. You can use any type of note values. (25 pts)

DUE: Monday, April 2, 2012 at 9:24 a.m.
(You have 4 days to complete this. Don’t ask for an extension.)
