    • Learning Composition Basic’s By Sarah Pete http://songspeak.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/sheet_music.jpg
    • BASIC COMPOSITION
      • Why did I Choose The Topic?
      • To further myself as a musician.
      • I wanted to learn how to compose, because I always was thinking of songs, and never writing them down, now that I learned how to write them down, polish them up, and have a final concrete version.
    • MRS. LAURA FAIRBANKS
      • My Field Expert
      • Mrs. Fairbanks
      • Teaches at Yenney’s Music Store.
      • Teaches piano, flute, and recorder.
      • Has a B.S. in Music Education & Music Therapy from Augsburg College, Minneapolis, MN.
    • WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR.
      • My Background in Music
      • Two years of piano lessons with a teacher.
      • Four years of choir, through middle school, high school, and a community group.
      • One year of band, in middle school , playing the clarinet.

    • TOOLS NEEDED
      • How to Start
    • My Piano
    • Sheet Music
    • My Field Expert: Mrs. Laura
    • WHAT’S THE COURSE OF ACTION
      • The Plan
      • Start with writing a song with no previous knowledge of the mechanics of composition.
      • When my initial composition is done, I will work with field advisor on how to correctly transcribe my song onto paper handwritten.
      • Work on polishing out the song, including phrasing, and dynamics.
    • COST VS. CONVENIENCE
      • Why Handwritten?
      • Handwriting music is a good way to document my progress.
      • By handwriting, you learn so much more, instead of typing it into a program and it doing the work for you.
      • The programs used to write music tend to get pretty expensive.
      • Depending on the program you decide to get, they can range from around $60 up to $300 or more.
      • The one that looked the best that I found was Sibelius 6, the most expensive version being $1000, least expense $320. Not all programs are this expensive.
    • WHY “GROWING CHERRIES”
      • The Title?
      • Why did I choose the Title “Growing Cherries”?
      • Not due to eating cherries next to my piano unfortunately, that would have been delicious.
      • It was due to my piano of cherry wood, and the cherry blossom tree outside of my house. As the tree went through it’s seasons and grew and changed, so was I, same with my skill at the piano.

    • WHAT WAS HAPPENING
      • Progression
    • The First Attempt
      • What is Wrong?
      • No Time Signature. No note stems. No measure bars. No note values added.

    • Getting Somewhere
      • What was added in?
      • Connected bars together correctly. Added in measures. Stems where added. Note values where assigned. Some dynamic markings added.
      • What is it wrong?
      • Stems on wrong side. Still missing some needed markings.

    • Almost There
      • What Was Added?
      • Added in more detail, started to refine the piece. Page is very cluttered at this point, and is almost ready to be rewritten for the final draft. Mistakes at this point where being corrected.

    • Reflection
      • The process of this project was long, sometimes hard, and I learned a lot. It was very fun most of the time, and I am proud of the end result. I enjoyed doing this very much, and would love to continue writing, especially now that I am more proficient at it, and my work is legible.
