FMS 6th grade Intermediate Band goes to Disneyland for Music Workshop

On 1/27 the FMS Intermediate Band was invited to participate in the Disney Music Performing Arts workshop. Seventy five band members went into a Disney recording studio and learned about music composition and design and how it is used throughout the park. After a presentation on melody, harmony, rhythm and tonal color, students were asked to develop their own music to become the accompanying sounds to a Disney ride. Students were divided into six groups. Each group chose a student conductor and collaborated to compose and arrange their parts. Next, each group got to record their short composition before listening and watching their performance on the big screen. It was a very fun and educational day for our developing musicians at Fillmore Middle School.
