Check this music out if you missed class or are new! This is our model for our Ligeti Compositions... Ligeti uses ONLY the notes A and D for this piece (and actually, most of it is A's... there's just one D at the very end!).
This is a piece of Ligeti's "Lontano" as featured in the old school horror film "The Shining."

Here's some wise words from your peers to get you motivated and inspired for the last third of the school year!
“MUSIC CLASS IS DIFFERENT THAN OTHER CLASSES BECAUSE WE, AS MUSICIANS, ARE REQUIRED TO...
have a good time.
have an open mind.
listen and then play.
learn to read music.
find different answers.
play and write exactly how we feel.
be a part of our sound.
show our feelings.
create our own music with inspiration."
