A few groups in music makerspace have been working on story telling. They have created original stories and told them using instruments for effect. They have to think about which instruments would make good effects for which section of the story, and how they are going to create a certain mood to enhance the story.
We have also had a few original group compositions featuring some solos, and some larger ensemble pieces. One group played all together but also had a solo section for everyone to take a turn!
