An important part of the elementary music program at Lincoln School is writing and creating music. We believe that each child is a composer and can write and perform original works. As part of our composer units, students used composition apps to craft pieces, as well as study composers of their choice. We recently dove into the music of living composer Jeremy Messersmith and collectively learned his song “Little Blue World.”
After completing different grade level composition units, we recorded the entire elementary school singing Little Blue World and sent it to Jeremy Messersmith. Along with our video, students compiled a list of questions for Jeremy. We are excited to share his video response which also includes a special performance for our Lincoln students!
Thanks to all those involved in recording and sending the video!
