Title: Teachers' Experiences as Composers and Arrangers
Authors: Shand, Patricia
Keywords: Canadian music in education
classroom songwriting
student songwriting
music in classroom curriculum
music resources

Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Canadian Music Educators Assocaition
Citation: Shand, Patricia. “ Teachers' Experiences as Composers and Arrangers.” Canadian Music Educator. Vol. 51 No. 1 (Fall 2009), pp. 9-10.
Description: Shand presents three teachers' perspectives on their own compositional activities and the way that they use this new music in the classroom. Susan Phillips describes her use of the songwriting process to promote group learning and creativity; Kim Soleski Ward points out that many teachers (herself included) write pieces which connect to the regular classroom curriculum; Alison Temple notes that with small budgets, music educators can sidestep expensive copyright issues by creating their own works and sharing them with other educators and students as the need arises. This hands-on, flexible approach means that teachers can tailor material to specific students’ needs to create mature and satisfying music for beginners and more advanced students alike.
