ORIGINAL COMPOSITIONS BY MR. STICKNEY'S COMPREHENSIVE MUSIC CLASS

Posted June 5 at 8:03am

Students in Mr. Stickney’s Comprehensive Music class have been busy composing original music.  Students have learned about important compositional techniques, such as texture, form, sequences, chord progressions, imitation, and part-writing.  Students used these techniques to compose a piece of music in a style that they chose.  Students did an amazing job on this project, and three students from 

the class (pictured above) were chosen to have their compositions performed at the Spring Band Concert.  Students chosen were Reinier Potgieter for his composition “Movement II” , Jordan Pesola for his composition "The O.K. Composition", and Sofia Coyle for her composition “As far as you see”.  Please take a moment to listen to these wonderful creations!  Congratulations to the Comprehensive Music class on their creativity.
