About this Grantee

To foster creativity and increase students’ music proficiency, Mr. Rieker and Ms. Wolf implement a cross-curricular music composition project. Students conduct a hands-on exploration of range and rhythm through Orff instruments. After reading The Little Prince, each student is assigned one page of the book to capture through music. Students compose and refine their individual pieces using music technology software. All individual segments are combined into one piece, which the students perform at a concert.
