Composing ideas

Compose a short minuet, for solo instrument or instrument plus accompaniment, using the following rhythm.

Decorate the melody. The minuet should be in binary form, moving to a new key at the end of the A section and returning to the home key in the B section.

Write a short concerto-style piece for a soloist plus a small group of instruments. Create a long, flowing melody using a lot of repetition. Some passages of the melody should be for the soloist, others for the group, and some should be played by both together.
