Inventing Musical Compositions

Inventing Musical Compositions thumbnail161988
Fourth and fifth grade students in Ms. Lisa Scrom’s music classes performed their own musical compositions using Makey Makey, a hands-on invention kit that uses everyday objects and turns them into a touchpad that interacts with a computer program. First creating rhythms, the students assigned colors corresponding to pitches in their composed melodies. They followed this by using the Makey Makey software to code and design their own controller to then perform their compositions.
