WeCompose Resource Pack 2022-23
This is the teacher resource pack the pilot year of our composition project WeCompose.
The project brings professional musicians and composers into the classroom to support your key stage three students as they develop composition skills.
This pack focusses on writing for wind quintet. At Music in the Round, we believe students should begin composing at their instruments, only turning to notation software once their ideas are already formed. These resources have this approach at their centre, encouraging your students to write music in small groups as an ensemble.
For those taking part in the project, professional composers then support teachers to translate these pieces into music for wind quintet.
This pack accompanies our ‘How to Compose’ videos, presented by Andrew Smith, also available on this website. This pack contains tips and further activities that both unpack and develop these videos, as well as giving practical advice for managing group composition activities with a larger class.
