Here is a podcast about a composition project I did with first and second grade students at Westlawn Elementary. I wrote extensively about this project in another post.
“I had the opportunity to teach some amazing students this year through the Mobile Symphony’s Preludes music program. This program is designed to give first and second graders weekly instruction in basic music concepts, and I had a blast working with the children at Westlawn Elementary!
Through the school year we studied a variety of things including music with a steady beat, call and response, basic rhythmic notation, and a variety of other musical terms and concepts. As the year drew to a close I decided to have a little fun with these creative students. We took some of the tools we learned and put them to good musical use. We composed music!”
This podcast includes both compositions and a little discussion about how we approached the project. If you would like more details about the project then feel free to read the other post that includes some video files of the students listening to their music.
