Morning Like Mozart

Spend the morning creating music, exploring instrument sounds, discovering new ways of imaging music.  In this class, we’ll be using a web-based music composition program, be able to hear and share our creations that may include a variety of instruments, and print out our scores at the end of the morning.  Let your creative thoughts flow through music.  No experience necessary as we venture into the world of a composer.
