Collaborative Composition Project
Author: Cecilia Bullough
Organization: HCPSS - Lake Elkhorn Middle School (LEMS)
E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
This project is designed with four outcomes: 1) encourage students’ interest in composing music, 2) strengthen students' composition skills, 3) encourage the use of technology as a tool for music notation and 4) provide an opportunity for students to use technology to share music performances. A 6th grade music class at LEMS will create original group compositions to share with a 6th grade music class at another HCPSS middle school. Students will create their compositions using the notation software Finale Notepad. Students will swap their compositions, practice playing the compositions and perform the compositions for each other via Skype.
