This past month 6th grade students have had a wonderful opportunity to begin exploring and creating their own music by using the amazing internet based program called MusicFirst. They are currently working with a program called soundation4education, which is a music looping program similar to Garageband for Mac products. Students are working independently on task to help develop their skills as a composer and a musician.
They can access this program while in school or at home! Ask them to show you their work, the website can be found here:
Audio samples will be uploaded soon, so be on the look out for it!
