I prepared a one-minute video of lovely Fall photos that I had taken on Thanksgiving weekend. I saved the movie on my ipad (with no sound of course) and I let them watch the video once so they could plan the mood and anticipate the video length. While watching the video a second time, they each recorded their improvisation on my digital piano using Garageband.
I was very pleased that everyone was successful with this creative project. I picked the top recording to become the official music for my little photo montage. Congratulations Marissa! Nice work. Please take a minute to watch and listen.
Wouldn't it be an amazing project to have students create their own videos and original music. This just might be the year to do it.
