Students are currently working on music genre projects in class. Each person picks a genre and finds out as much information on it as possible. Students then pick an artist from that genre and explain about the history and influences of that particular person. All of these projects will be posted on this site for everyone to see once they are all completed.
Students have also been working with technology. The program GarageBand is a music composing software on IPads that allows students to compose their own music. Using the information from their projects, students will create a piece based on their genre. This is a very exciting time for the Middle Schoolers. We all have become composers using technology.
