In keeping with our Exploring a Galaxy of Music theme for the year, last week’s Briefing Session (a.k.a. group class) was themed A Galaxy of Composers. Here are a couple shots from the evening:
I held this session at the studio, so twenty of us crammed into the small space to listen to performances, play games, and learn about the various composers.
Prior to playing their piece, each student shared a brief report about the composer of their selection. I was impressed with the creativity employed in putting together their reports (the one pictured included a PowerPoint presentation)!
I’ve uploaded a free set of the A Galaxy of Composers Lesson Plans I developed for this class. If you’re interested in doing a composer-themed group class with your students, feel free to download and use the file and corresponding activities. We had a ton of fun with it!
