   Creating New Stuff (ages 9-14)
   Kick start your students’ imaginations with one of our Noteable
   originals. It has been improved and re-released due to the
   amount of requests we have for it!! Creating New Stuff is full of
   imaginative ways your students can start to compose. It includes
   group composition activities, creative starter ideas, working
   with themes, as well as some more advanced composition work
   like using chord progressions and forms. As with all Noteable
   published resources, this book is 100% reproducible so you
   can simply photocopy for your students. Take the ideas and
   make them your own, use them in your units or create an
   entire composition unit. Students do not always need to have
   theory skills equal to their performance skills to express their
   ideas and knowledge through music. This book is written and
   designed by music teachers for music teachers with the ideas
   all tested and approved by music students.
