Outside the Lines
A New Approach to Composing in the Cassroom
By Mark Burrows
For grades 2-6
Each composition activity in this resource is designed to free your students so they can focus on expressing their creative ideas without worrying about breaking any musical "rules." The result is a set of activities that fulfill the National Standards of Music Education yet are accesssible and enjoyable. Reproducible.
Students will be invited to work with everything from picture notation to a one-line staff as they participate in composition activities that are educational, rewarding, invigorating and fun! Students can compose a soundtrack, shape a river of sound, create a soundscape to accompany a famous painting, even build a cool percussion groove using box notation. But, most of all, your students will learn that composing is all about communicating, creating and connecting!
