Poetic License; Using Poetry to Guide Composition; By Mari Schay; Book; 68 pages; Grades 2 - 6 The goal of Poetic License is to provide a framework for composition projects in the general music classroom. Each poem is written with standard rhythmic notation. Reproducible worksheets with step-by-step instructions will guide students to add melody to the poem. Activities are organized by musical concept, with each section further organized by difficulty. As your students work to compose pleasant and singable melodies, duets, and arrangements, they will also learn to count intervals, create chords, and explore expressive techniques.
