Composing and Arranging with Web-Based Tools in the Band Classroom

  • thumbnail for Nick Conner
  • Noteflight and Flat are composing tools (similar to Sibelius/Finale) that are web-based, low cost, and student friendly. Through the development of a composing/arranging curriculum, these tools can increase student engagement and depth of musical knowledge in your performance music programs. From writing simple melodies for beginning orchestra to writing blues charts for jazz band to arranging full songs for concert choir, these are fantastic tools to use for all levels and ensembles.

  • Nick Conner has been teaching middle school band and choir at Fairview South School in Skokie, IL for ten years. He completed his undergraduate in music education from Indiana University, and his master's in music education from Northwestern University. After his school implemented a 1:1 Chromebook program three years ago, Nick began integrating a composing curriculum into the band curriculum. For the last two years, student work has been a regular component of concerts, to the great pleasure of his students and their parents!
