Compose Music fast and easy! This smart response tool is a fun and interactive way to get kids composing music quickly. A shape represents each solfedge pitch of a major scale. Students drag shapes to create melody. Multiple copies of each set of exercises allow the teacher to fluidly compose music with different students within a class, without having to pause to erase or save. I use the text command to type in the student's name onto the page they compose. Try printing the slides for a beautiful display of musical composition! This also greatly improves ear training and music reading. Each activity is sequentially based on adding one note of the scale at a time, and limiting student's compositions to just a few pitches in each example. There are three sections, composing in boxes, composing melody on a staff, and then combining rhythm and pitch.
I hope you enjoy my work!!!!
