MUSIC COMPOSITION: A Step by Step Approach

Teaching young musicians how to write a melody is not easy. I have used the process outlined in this resource for many years with my classes, and it works without fail! My students call it my melody writing recipe! The file contains: -A NINE page Teachers Resource that explains in detail, step by step, a process for young musicians to follow when writing their first four bar melody. -A TEN page Student Workbook I show the slides in the Teachers Resource on a digital projector and demonstrate the information one a white board as we work our way through the slides 2 - 9. You may choose to have your students follow and work in their Student Workbook as you go through the information OR have them watch the demonstration first and then work through their booklet. The students then take the knowledge and process they are learnt to compose TWO 8 bar melodies. The final TWO slides in the Student Workbook can be copied and reused for further melody writing exercises. ***Students will need to have a little background knowledge of keys and chords
