Contempo Kids is a composition curriculum created by Intersection. The goal is to get students writing and creating music and developing their unique musical voice. It focuses on music creation encouraging and guiding students to compose and create original works. While rooted in Western classical music, Contempo Kids explores other styles and musical expressions, notation and other methods of creation, tools and technology.
Through the curriculum, students will have a deeper understanding of musical components, intention, and communication. Students will have access to visiting composers and musicians from Intersection. Curriculum is designed for students of varying levels.
