- Compose with solfege syllables

- Compose with notes on the staff (1st ledger line below the staff to top of staff chromatic included as well as a blank page of staff cards)

- Broken down into rhythm and solfege/melodic elements for younger students

- Pattern writing

- 3 and 5 line staff options for youngest students.

Let students compose by placing notes in a grid, OR by writing rhythmic patterns and adding solfege to the patterns before writing on the staff.
