The goal for Day 3 was to have our compositions basically finished by the end of the day. With that in mind, we spent time discussing form (AB, ABA, through-composed, etc.) as well as various aspects of proper music notation.
My cat, Coda, loves to help my students with their compositions.
It is exciting to see our compositions taking form!
Halfway through each day, we enjoyed a snack outside on the patio. On this particular day, one of my students brought in a birthday snack to share: homemade ice cream sandwiches!
Composing is hard work. ;)
That evening, I updated each student’s composition in Finale and printed nearly-completed drafts for students to work from the following day.
