Using Notation Software

Filed under: Tech in Music Ed, Sp13 — jmeschi @ 9:36 am

As found in Chapter 7 of our textbook here are some uses of notation software:

For teachers:

  • Rewrite parts to meet the demands of an ensemble
  • Further listening skills via immediate feedback (formative assessment)
  • Write out exercises or create a complete method book
  • Develop composing and arranging skills (meet standard 4)
  • Create lead sheets with lyrics and chords

Some possible uses for students include:

  • Create original music
  • Transcribe melodies, perhaps parts they are playing in ensembles
  • Create ledgible theory class assignments

Look through Chapter 7 again for further uses. And, of course, use your own imagination :-)
