How to build an original music composition

Great example for students. Most students tend to add too many different ideas at the same time or switch ideas too quickly. Here is a great video of how a song is built using repetition and melody.

I appreciate your comment. Sorry I do not have an online tutorial. I have done that part of the instruction “live” so far because I find students need constant formative assessments as they go through the process. Maybe I will look at that as many students still need to revisit the information several times before they can successfully to use it. I personally have checked many publications but still have not found one on melody and song writing that I would want to use in the classroom. Some have good sections but they all fall short somehow.
