I have been invited to interview at Oxford Brookes next Thursday for Music secondary, and one of the tasks is to devise a simple piano accompaniment given a short diatonic melody. We?ll have time to prepare (doesn?t say how much), so it?s not improvised but could anyone give me any tips on how to prepare for this part of the interview? I?ve never been any good at improvisation, and I?ve always avoided composition as much as possible so I have no idea at all how to approach this kind of task. Any suggestions? thanks!
