Improvising: Getting brave enough to make mistakes and empowered enough to make decisions. Process! “We get to make stuff up!?”
Developing: Time must be given to incubate ideas, reflect, and change. Parameters are important so students will be able to focus. Often when students choose a title for their work the project takes flight.
Refining: Students must feel safe to choose and stand by decisions. No “right” answer is an uncomfortable concept for some students and teachers. Support and acceptance is vital.
- Sound/Composing Apps
GarageBand: May be used to record student compositions. Teacher may create a loop to accompany improvisations. Start with one chord, then two (Ex: G and Em or C and Am), then 12-bar Blues.
3. RECORDING APPS

SoundCloud: STORAGE & Links
A list of apps and websites I use:
For today’s session I used Splashtop on my laptop and iPad, so I could move around the room. Trial for 7 days is free if you want to see if it works for you. You might need permission to download and install on your presentation computer if it is school property.
Please share apps or sites you use for creating or anything that we would use. Thank you SO MUCH!
