Music Composition Incursions

Adding to our famous In-Schools Term programme, Jellybeans Music now offers a one-off composition workshop to Primary schools. In the Jellybeans Music Composition Incursion each class composes their own music. No previous experience is necessary! To make things easy we supply you with:

  • a highly skilled music specialist
  • all teaching materials (that meet Australian National Curriculum outcomes)
  • all classroom instruments for the day (glockenspiels, hand percussion)
  • up-skilling of your own school staff (participate in our classes and watch the experts do it!)

How do the classes work?

We provide 50-60 minute classes throughout the day to each class. We can generally fit 5-7 classes in a day. For more classes we will extend into additional days to ensure all students have an incredible musical experience! Find out more about the individual offerings below. 

Please note: this pricing is relevant for Sydney and Melbourne metropolitan region schools. We happily work with regional schools but may need to add travel costs depending on location.

What do we do in a Composition Incursion?

A composition incursion is a great fun and ideal learning experience for all Primary age students. Our teacher works with each class to create a piece of music using some simple techniques. Designed around our Composition Tool Kit, students can choose to compose a piece in a variety of styles that match core topic areas:

  • Space - The Final Frontier (Space)
  • Friends In Our Community (People and Places)
  • Celebrate! (Holidays and celebrations)
  • The Bollywood Ball (Multi-culturalism)
.... and many more!

This incursion focuses on core curriculum elements not covered often in schools, such as:
  • Structure
  • Harmony
  • Creating/Composing
  • Improvising
  • Literacy
Rarely do Primary school students attempt the level of composition work that our children demonstrated and the engagement and pride in their results was evident when the bell went and they continued their performances". L. Fraser (Assistant Principal)
