and loops that I had edited, but without deciding to make this piece a full
composition, I would not have learned how to give it the direction it needed.
And in doing so, I was also able to develop a personal compositional style of

6th and 7th graders trace the struggle of a soldier and his wife as the couple
navigates their love for each other, of home and sense of duty. High school
students explore the compositional techniques of a great musician from the

discovers his artistic voice while tackling a notoriously difficult IB subject.
The common thread that links these three populations is technology and
the power it gives to musical artists.
