posted Dec 20, 2017, 10:09 AM by Towson High Music

Greetings-

 

The Office of Music and Dance Education is extremely pleased to announce and roll out the 2018 Composition Project.  This is open to all students grades PreKindergarten through 12 who are enrolled in music class at their school.  The Composition Project supports BCPS music educators in their efforts to incorporate the National Core Music Standards and the Maryland State Music Standards in the classroom and rehearsals.  The project is designed to encourage and enhance the instructional experiences of BCPS students and provide students and music educators with professional critique, enhanced recognition, and selected presentations for the ongoing creative work.  Students are highly encouraged to also submit their composition to MMEA for the Young Composers Project.

 

The theme this year will be “My Journey, My Future”.  Deadline: February 2, 2018.

 

Attached, you will find the following materials for the Composition Project:

·       Composition Project Overview

·       Composition Project Application

·       Composition Project Rubric

·       Composition Project Composer Statement

·       Composition Project Composer Statement Flow Chart (guide sheet)

·       Composition Project Upload Instructions

 

It is recommended to download all documents and begin working on saving files in OneDrive. Students are encouraged to review the rubric throughout the compositional process. We will also work to place these items on the Music Office intranet site.

 

We cannot wait to see and hear all of the amazing compositions by the students!  Please email Shane Jensen, Specialist, sjensen@bcps.org with any questions pertaining to the Composition Project.  For those working on electronic mediums, Melissa Goetschius mgoetschius@bcps.org at Joppa View ES has agreed to assist with any teacher questions on electronic mediums.

 

Thank you all for promoting the Composition Project and as we get more feedback this year, we are excited to see this project expand.  Your flexibility, dedication, and willingness to promote and teach musical composition is greatly appreciated.
