7th Grade Music Careers Project

In this unit, 7th graders were asked to choose a career in music that interested them. After researching their career, students put together an information slideshow to present to the class in the next few classes. The final step of their project will be to complete an assignment based on their specific career that will tap into their creative side. Some examples of these creative projects will include writing/performing a song, leading the class in a music therapy activity, creating a new beat, and much more!

3rd Grade Composition Project

3rd graders combined their knowledge of rhythms and pitches to compose 8-measure pieces in AB form. They chose a tempo and dynamics for their compositions, giving them titles that reflected the speed and volumes they chose.

2nd Grade Instrument Project

To bring their instrument families unit to a close, 2nd graders were asked to invent a new instrument. They had to choose what instrument family it would belong in (string, brass, woodwind, or percussion) and determine what they wanted it to sound like. In this unit, we explored how different materials, sizes, and other characteristics or qualities an instrument has affects the sound it makes. Students then submitted pictures of their instruments or, in some cases, were able to make these instruments at home.
