Music Composition

video

     This semester one of the classes I'm taking is called Music in the Elementary Classroom. We learn how to play the recorder, basic music skills, and how to teach music in our future classrooms. We often have small projects and do things in class that are things we could do with our students. This project was to write a composition using whatever instruments, body percussion, or other noise we desired. We had to write the song down using our own notation with a key. This is what is projected on the screen, but unfortunately, you can't see it, and I don't have a copy. Our project had to be sounds from somewhere. Hopefully you could guess it from the video, but we chose to do a ship in the ocean, where the girl jumps off and gets attacked by a shark.

     We had a lot of fun with this project, and I could see a similar working well with different subjects. Enjoy!
