Year 4 Music and ICT

In our current unit of music, we have been using Garageband to compose our own music.

Today, we looked at why people compose the music they do for films and pictures and how music can make us feel as the audience.

The children were shown two pictures for which they had to create a short piece of music to describe the picture. They looked at different instruments, the sounds they make and how they could be used to describe feelings.

We then moved onto composing a piece of music for a video. The video is about a Base Jumper and is quite tense. Children watched the video, then composed their piece thinking about timing as well as what is happening in the video.

I was particularly impressed with Edgars and Oscar. They worked together to compose a piece of music which I think is fantastic.

Have a listen and see what you think!
