Composing is a great way for kids to express their creativity and apply the concepts you’re teaching. When you give kids the chance to compose a song about something they’re already excited about, they really have a blast.
I like to use composition projects to reinforce the scales we’re learning, so I included a place for you to write down the scale you’d like the child to use as they compose. Of course, you don’t have to do this, but hen you do ask kids to compose based on a scale, you prepare them for learning key signatures and tonality and they also get better at improvising in key. I think it’s important to ask them to compose in many different keys, as opposed to always assigning the key of C.
