The objectives of the session are to review any information that has been collected about musical life in Motherwell, to complete a class song composition exercise, and to launch individual and group creative work.
Children have been invited to collect information about the musical life of Motherwell, past, present and future. The class will discuss whatever has been collected, and children will be encouraged to continue with this work.
The class will then compose a song together about their home town – words and music – using the group composition “menu” method.
They will then divide into groups to start work on further individual and group creative work, with a view to level three creativity, presenting and performing outcomes. This work will be reviewed in the next session.
