Composing

what is composing
What is Composing?
  • Writing your own music.
  • Someone who composes is called a composer.
  • Who are some famous composers?
  • What is the difference between composing and arranging? Improvising?
what tools do we need
What tools do we need?
  • Just like a good writer needs tools like grammar, spelling, a vocabulary, a composer has tools to help write music.
  • Notes, Rhythms, Time signatures, Clefs
  • Instruments and Voices
1 st composition
1st Composition
  • With a partner, write a short song for unpitched percussion.
  • The song should be unision.
  • The second time may be a duet.
2 nd composition
2nd Composition
  • With an partner, create a simple ostinato for body percussion and add a vocal melody.
  • The ostinato will act as an accompaniment.
  • When writing lyrics it is best to first form a topic. The lines may rhyme but rhyming is not required.
3 rd composition
3rd Composition
  • You will compose a simple melody for a mallet instrument. The melody must be written on a staff, with a clef, time signature, bar lines, a rhythms (it must look like music)
  • A few hints: a good melody moves scale-wise, ends and starts on the same note, and uses quarter notes and eighth notes.
final composition
Final Composition
  • This will use all of the skills we have developed so far.
  • In small groups, you will write a song with multiple parts (not unison) using all of the musical tools (notes rhythms etc.) that is at least 16 measures in length.
  • You may use mallets, unpitched percussion, body percussion, or vocals.
tips for your final composition
Tips for your Final Composition
  • Use a variety of instruments
  • Write all of you ideas down and then decide if you will keep them.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment or make a mistake.
  • If you write more than one melodic part choose notes that work well together; usually space notes sound good with other space notes and lines notes sound good with other line notes.
