We've added a new online interactive piano this year so students can test out their melodies when doing their Breezin' Thru Composition activities. The keys can be played with a mouse or you can use your typing keyboard to play chords (top 2 rows 1st octave, next rows 2nd octave
). Enjoy tapping the virtual ivories as your kids develop their Songuary submissions. The interactive piano resides in the subscribers portal.
Composers In Action
Grade 7 students Tracey Ngyuen
and Stephen Babb
of Hazel McCallion Sr. Public School share their
melodies from Chapters 1 & 2 compostion lessons in Breezin' Thru Theory. Listen to their great examples and encourage your students to submit their work too. We'll provide feedback, suggestions for expansion, and for the top Songuary submissions, we'll also create personalized videos for them. Woohoo!
P.S. We'd love to receive melodies from some of the higher Breezin' chapters too.
