Conceive, Create, Complete: Shaping Musical Minds through Composition

Christy Tallamy

SYNOPSIS: Composition engages the complete musical mind-- promoting critical and creative thinking. It is a bridge between learning music and understanding music. Yet we often view composition as an extra or even advanced skill-- one we don't have time to teach. In this presentation, you will learn how to mentor your students in developing basic composition skills, how to efficiently incorporate composition into your regular lessons, and how to inspire students to conceive, create and complete their musical idea.
