... and then mix and remix to create endless combinations of original chants and rhythmic compositions. Will the phrases the students create make a chant that makes sense? Will the combinations turn into some very strange “lyrics” for their song? Students are keen to read the chants and rhythmic compositions THEY have created and will be engaged and interested in repeating the activity in multiple combinations.

In addition to applying their music skills, students are empowered with the knowledge that when they organize sounds, they are actually composers!

Enjoy creating, having fun and experiencing the wonderful world of music through play and exploration.

Donna’s childhood valentine memories include making her own valentines to give to her friends, and remembering the spicy flavour of cinnamon hearts. Donna still loves the taste of cinnamon and she loves the fact that Valentine messages and hearts can create an opportunity for her students to develop their composing skills. Donna is enthusiastic about promoting creative manipulation of music elements (composing!) with students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. Her personal composing efforts have resulted in well over 400 songs written for solo voice, choral, handbell, recorder, violin and piano.
