Music at CSDB
We have been doing a unit on song-writing. We invited a professional musician to speak to the students.
Students listened to him perform his original song and they were able to ask him questions about his song-writing process.
In the Bulldog Band class, students are completing a song composition project. The band class interviewed a variety of composers about their composition styles and learned that every composer has a song-writing process that is unique. The project is student-driven where students pick the style of music, topic and instrumentation for their song. Some of the students decided to collaborate with other students for the project. They are writing in a variety of styles (classical, blues, pop, and rock.)
We are excited to record all of the projects and share them with students and families. We also want to incorporate the songs into our future Spring production at CSDB.
