Developing composition and creativity skills is a great way to engage students in artistic literacy as well as exercise students’ ability to imagine, investigate, construct, and reflect. In our increasingly multi-media age, these meta-cognitive activities are critical to student learning and achievement across the arts and other academic disciplines.

This composition project asks students to create a 16 measure piece for piano with four phrases that demonstrate the principles of repetition, variation, and contrast.
