1 Vibrant M usic Teaching Spring Themes Composing Project HOW TO USE Use with all students in a studio-wide project, or just with an individual student or group. Adapt to each student's level by exploring or ignoring the articulation, dynamic and form suggestions. With prereaders, allow them to notate in their own style rewrite for them on the staff if necessary. Complete each section together in the lesson, or assign as homework where possible. Encourage your student to take their time and try out many different options before deciding on their final composition. Optional extra: Record your students' compositions and put them together on a studio CD or soundcloud page. ASSEMBLY Print out the project (pages 2-8). You will need one copy for each student. LEARNING OBJECTIVES Composing is a fun and interactive way for students to learn about form, notation and other music theory. A studio-wide composing project is also fantastic for creating a sense of community and team spirit in your studio. Copyright Colourful Keys Keys

3 To get you started, here are some things associated with spring... Lambs Rabbits Tulips Cherry blossoms Daisies Chicks Swallows Sunshine Blue skies Rain showers Bird nests Easter eggs Bird song Butterflies Rain coats Worms Watering cans Seeds Ladybirds Bees Flower pots Kites Sports Playgrounds Parks Dandelions Rainbows There are many more things you could write about! Your piece could be about anything to do with spring! What theme have you chosen? Compose a melody to use as your main theme. This should be 4 bars long and reflect your theme. Compose three different options before picking your favourite. =&==================!==================!==================!==================. =&==================!==================!==================!==================. =&==================!==================!==================!==================.

4 We need some repetition to make a piece sound complete. The main theme you chose above will be A. Choose a form for your piece based on your new melody. ABBA ABAB AABA ABAA Label the lines on the Composition in Progress page and fill in the melody in the A sections. Write a contrasting B section melody and fill that in too. Play through your complete melody a few times. Does it sound too repetitive? If you like, you can vary your themes when they are repeated. Here are some ideas to change a theme the when it s played again. Change some of the notes Change some of the rhythm Echo it an octave higher Echo it in the bass clef Reverse the direction (if it went up the first time, go down the second) Remember, don t change it so much that it doesn t sound like the same tune. Play through the complete melody a few more times to make sure you re happy with it.

5 Now it s time to add some harmony! Think about what type of harmony would go with your melody. Have a look through your music books for more ideas. Here are some ideas to get you started: Play the melody in both hands One hand plays the melody a third higher or lower One hand plays the melody a fifth higher or lower Chords Alberti bass Jump bass Open fifths Broken chords Waltz pattern These are just a few ideas. Try these out, as well as any harmony ideas you find in your books. You can use more than one type of harmony in your piece, but try not to use too many different types or it won t sound like one piece! After experimenting, add your favourite harmony to the Composition in Progress page. To finish your piece, you need to add some details to make the music exciting. Think about adding some articulations and ornaments such as: Staccato notes Slurs Phrase lines Accented notes Passing tones Turns Trills You also need to decide how fast/slow and loudly/softly you want your piece played. Add tempo marks and dynamics. Allegro Andante Largo Vivace Crescendo/diminuendo Forte Pianissimo Mezzo piano Rewrite your piece as neatly as you can on a Draft Piece page, and title it.
