Young composers project


The Young Composers Project is a collaborative project between the North Carolina NewMusic Initiative, ECU Lab School, and Pitt County Public Schools.  This project implements a 6-week curriculum that synthesizes basic music skills, teamwork, critical thinking, and creative and conceptual thought to yield an original piece of music.  Designed for 3-6 grade students, the project helps students learn music through creation.

Bucket Drumming Clinics occur in 1-hour and 6-week sessions.  These clinics are designed to teach basic music skills, basic percussion techniques, performance skills, discipline, and teamwork skills through ensemble drumming.  Over the course of each session, students learn to play several pieces (one short piece for 1-hour sessions).  6-week sessions conclude with a performance.
