Freedoms &

Constraints

  • Improvise/Explore
  • Model Process (compose together)
  • Collaboration with peers
  • Sequence tasks
  • Enable students to hear their work
  • Peer & teacher feedback (questions/suggestions)
engaging
Engaging
  • Models
    • the hook model (watch and listen)
    • the assignment-specific model (physically engage in the music)
  • Balancing freedoms and constraints
    • Parameters: limiting rhythm values, time signature, etc.
    • Extending the boundaries if students need greater freedom
  • Showcasing and sharing student work
    • Motivate and inspire (spark ideas)
    • * at various points throughout the composing process
providing tools
Providing Tools
  • Improvise/Explore
    • To get a sense of the shape of the piece (together)
    • To find an idea/motif (alone)
  • Model the Process (compose together)
    • Composing is making decisions (what happens next?)
    • 3 choices: repeat, develop, new material
    • Developing: e.g. chunking, extending, shrinking, stretching
    • Structuring: vertical (unison/solo/polyphonies),

horizontal (e.g. abba, abaca, etc.)

guiding
Guiding
  • Sequence tasks:
    • Find motif
    • Make decisions (repeat? develop? new material?)
    • Structure (horizontally and vertically)
    • Refine
  • Aural feedback: enable students to HEAR their work (facilitating self assessment)
  • Teacher and peer feedback: questions/suggestions
