Facilitating Composition in Instrumental Settings

(p.149) 8 ) Facilitating Composition in Instrumental Settings
Composing our Future

Alexander P. Koops

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents guidelines and suggestions for including composition activities in instrumental music methods classes and for encouraging pre-service teachers to include composing in their future performance ensembles. It offers suggestions to guide music teacher-educators in considering how composition can be situated in a variety of instrumental methods and technique classes. Particular attention is given to the challenges of composing in settings where transposition can pose a significant communication hurdle. Projects that engage pre-service teachers in the creation of original works for large ensemble are included. Suggestions for the application of these ideas in middle school and high school ensembles are offered at the conclusion of the chapter.

Keywords:   composition activities, instrumental music, music methods classes, composigin, middle school, high school, communication
