Composing


Both boys have been writing a lot of music for their violins and for the piano.  Kal-El reminded me this week that I am sooo grateful that we homeschool when I saw him playing the following composition:


Did you see that title?  Happy Days at Home.  I was so tickled.

I keep staff paper stocked on the writing shelf for the boys.  We ran out.  Instead of telling me, Kal-El improvised and made his own.  I printed out a whole bunch more from the Susan Paradis site.  Me Too uses the "giant staff" and Kal-El uses the regular "staff paper for children."  

I laminated one "example" page that we keep with the staff paper to help them put all the elements in the right place when they start a new piece.
