Music Composition Project

Music Composition Project

You will compose a 32-measure piece of music (more is fine). You will have to decide which clef and which time signature you are going to use.

Must include:
Whole notes Half notes
Quarter notes Eighth notes
Whole rests Half rests
Quarter rests
Time signature Bar lines
Tempo marking

Eighth rests Other Italian terms
Dynamics Other musical symbols

Make sure your music is neat. Yes, neatness will count!!

Make sure your music has variety. The same thing over and over again is boring.

Your rough draft must have the numbers below the notes.
