Digital Music

This fall in Middle School Music, students worked on discovering the connections between movement and music. Learning the 8 Laban Efforts and the 7 Musical Modes, students worked to compose original scores for multimedia pieces created in stop-motion.

Students began the semester by participating in ‘Competitive Folk Dancing’ and making connections between the different scales and images of bridges. This year we have integrated middle school music into our Interdisciplinary Studies program.

Here are our student projects!

We always like to create a fun announcement to help quiet the crowd before we begin the show! This announcement was scripted, composed and recorded by our Upper Elementary friends.

Mahmoud and the Bomb— an excerpt from Refugee by Alan Gratz

This fall we did a global read aloud project with the book Refugee by Alan Gratz. This story follows four refugees from different countries across different time periods and tells the stories of the journeys. This clip is an excerpt from the book and was composed and produced by some of our middle school students.
