Students in the Clayton Huey Elementary School Young Composers Club performed their own original music for their families during a performance on March 6. The club, made up of fourth and fifth graders, encourages students to learn how to write their own music. Club adviser Mrs. Basile guided students through writing their own songs with lyrics, different rhythms and pitches.
Leading up to the performance, students worked alone or in small groups to write their songs. They gave each other constructive feedback and helped each other prepare to share their music in front of an audience.
“We here at Clayton Huey talk about being risk-takers” said Mrs. Basile. “I don’t know anything riskier than learning something new and sharing your new skill with others.”
This marked the first year of the Young Composers Club at the building.
