January Composing

The 4th and 5th grade students at Pine Glen have spent some time composing this January.  The box on the sidebar of the site has been updated to include recordings of these new compositions.  The 4th grade composed using a 3 plus one formula.  Each group wrote two rhythms, one that would be repeated 3 times, and one that was just played once.  The students chose what instruments to play their compositions on, practiced and performed them.  The 5th graders composed rhythms as well, but instead of playing them on instruments, they were only allowed to use body percussion (clapping, snapping, stomping, etc..).  Some of their body percussion sounds are quite creative!!  Scroll down to find your room number and group, then listen or download and enjoy!
