Composing website - Claymagic http://web.me.com/carolbroos/Clay/Welcome.html

Four different groups of composers within your classroom:

4 - Composing with non-musicians
These may or may not be part of BOC (Band, Orchestra, Choir)
Limited note-reading skills, if any at all

Basic composing tricks that are tried and true:
Start and end on same note
Keep a basic rhythm pattern
KIS - Keep It Simple

Experimentation and Random are the words this group enjoys using and doing

3 - Composing with Non-traditional music students

Students who take lessons OUTSIDE the classroom and are NOT part of BOC

Basic composing tricks that are tired and true:
This group likes trying to use songs they know and incorporate them

Help with correct rhythm, dynamics, and articulation

2 - Composing with Musicians

Students who take private lessons

Part of the BOC (Band, Orchestra, Choir) performing groups

Basic composing tricks that are tired and true:
Use form, added articulation, dynamics, and band/orchestra instruments they can score for the performing groups they are a part of.
