“Lights, Camera, Action - Welcome to the Red Carpet Movie Music Premiere!”

  • thumbnail for Paul McCarthy
  • This project culminated in a ‘Movie soundtrack premiere’ night. From a position of no prior experience, students created their own movie soundtracks utilizing their knowledge gained of Creative Commons, Sibelius, and Acid Music Studio. All resources used, sample student work and programs will be provided, as well as student feedback on the task. This project incorporated composing, performing and listening and responding elements, and could be easily modified for 12-16 year olds.
