BAD EXAMPLE: Explain why it is important that Health & Safety check a venue Don’t use words such as ‘everything’ or ‘things’ and explain what you mean (‘because’…) by giving examples (‘by’…)
GOOD EXAMPLE: Explain why it is important that Health & Safety check a venue BY (how) ensuring that electrical equipment is safe; that there is clean water available and toilets are hygienic; that obstacles are will let and taped; there is crowd control; security at gates. This is BECAUSE (why) H&S protects the health, safety and welfare of the general public, the employees of the venue and the performers. They operate alongside civil law, which means that if not done properly the venue management could be sued.
IMPLICATION: ‘The conclusion that can be drawn from something’ You must DRAW CONCLUSIONS from the statement/question that is given. = What would happen if? : ‘Discuss the implications of Vocalise buying into a tour.’ = ‘What would happen if Vocalise bought into a tour.’
DEFINE: Vocalise is a local choir. Buying into a tour is when a musician or band pays a fee in exchange for being the opening act on a tour PROS: - buying an audience & greater exposure for Vocalise - the tour is organised already: no need to contact venues managers or promoters. - quicker way to access larger venues for Vocalise CONS: - will be very expensive and Vocalise could make a loss - the audience is not targeted specifically for Vocalise, and therefore the tour may not be successful - without prior experience the singers may not be ready for such a large venue. CONCLUSION: Whilst buying into a tour seems like an easy option for Vocalise to gain exposure, the cost could be prohibitive and it may not benefit the choir as the tour will not be catered to their music. Therefore, it would be better for Vocalise not to buy into a tour, and instead gain experience by performing in local venues, gradually working their way up the music industry.
Do the same as implications: DEFINE TERMS (very briefly) PROS (good) CONS (bad) YOUR CONCLUSION (therefore)
