An Intro To Composing

First up, this lovely book by Vicky Weber. The Song Garden is a perfect introduction to a composing lesson. (Full disclosure: some affiliate links but it won’t change your price. No pressure!)

This book is about a girl name Calla who plants flowers to compose a song as part of the town’s celebrations.
She gets to compose a song using flowers.

What is wonderful about this story is the apprehension she has about composing on her own. She discovers that there is no right way to write a song. This is perfect for young students as a reminder that it is ok to not be “perfect”, to make it their own and to put their own ideas down without fear of judgement.
