Music Works 1

Music Works 1 is the perfect course for any student who is new to composing music or even new to music in general. One does not need to have any experience at all in order to jump write in and begin to compose. The lessons in this course will get students started with making their own melodies and then using them in a full composition. They do not need to know how to read music notation to begin this course. They will learn to read notation by completing the course assignments and making their composition. There are a number of Noteflight activity assignments, web animations and other online tools that will help them to compose.
