In these exercises students will create word banks, which students can then use to help them build a strong image for their composition (for example by choosing and combining words from the bank). Of course, imagery doesn’t have to be created through words and students could use many things around them for inspiration – myths and stories, paintings and art, environment and landscapes are used by composers all the time to help them make decisions about their music.
