My 23 Music students at Calistoga Junior Senior High School love playing their instruments. We are a very small school, so students at all different levels are in the same class. They have recently even had a chance to compose their own music. As they were composing, many questions of how music is put together, such as harmony, chords, and how to choose notes that fit together, came up. This curiosity could be answered with the Alfred's Music Theory course. Students could work at their own level and deepen their understanding of the inner workings of music reading and composing. When we have our next music composition project, I can only imagine the creativity that will be music to our ears! The Alfred Music Theory Complete Lab Pack can be used by all Music students at every level (grades 7-12). I want my students to have the same opportunities as a large school where a Music Theory class would be offered. With this grant, you will be empowering the musicians of the future!
