VITERBO-COMP, OP. 1 ONLINE MUSIC COMPOSITION PROGRAM
Mary Ellen Haupert, Coordinator [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Music software (cloud storage): Mary Ellen Haupert organized a group of Noteflight® users (five sites throughout the state), comprised of Viterbo graduates and composer/teacher friends. There are 800 students and teachers who have Noteflight® music writing software to compose music anytime, anywhere!
Composition process: Resources for teaching composition are available online (www.maryellenhaupert.com), but it is recommended that composition be the creative counterpart to teaching the fundamentals of music.
Suggested outcomes for each level: · Elementary level—Student will compose a single-line piece in 4/4 with an optional descant or harmony line. Recommended keys: C, F, G ·Intermediate level—Student will compose a piece with a simple harmonic background. S/he will begin exploring other keys, consonance, dissonance, etc. ·Advanced level—Student demonstrates knowledge of all the elements of music (melody, rhythm, harmony, texture/timbre, form) through composition.
Performance opportunity: All student work will be showcased at their respective schools, studios, or online at the end of the school year!
