On Day 2 of our composing camp, our goal was to get a good amount of our pieces composed and written down by the end of the day.
We used the piano or keyboard to improvise until we found music we liked.
Then, we started writing it down on staff paper.
I had two stations arranged: my piano and my keyboard with headphones.
Students worked at the table and then took turns using the piano/keyboard.
I went from student to student, helping them as needed.
Hard at work, yet having fun!
It’s exciting to see the compositions taking form.
That evening, I took it upon myself to enter each student’s composition so far into Finale. I printed these drafts out for students to work from the following day.
