Mile High Music Makers Compose Project

Have you ever wanted to create music to share your voice with others? The Mile High Music Makers are busily engaged in creating music that reflects their individual voices, stage of composing ability and experimentation with sound and multiple instrumentation.

Students in the project utilize Noteflight Learn as their notation software of choice. This web-based software allows students to work at home and in the studio. They can compose “on the go” at any time instead of only composing in the studio.

Below are the sound files for the Call fo the Wild Composing Theme for the last segment of Colorado Composes With Friends Project.

Ben has really explored the use of multiple instruments in his piece “The Battle”. Ben acted as the timpanist in our Advanced Ensembles during the American Landscape Concert. We will have to ask Ben if his role in the ensemble played a part in his composition.
