“Each student was asked to create a song that incorporated their own voice,” said Technology Teacher Justin Silbaugh. “There were a number of objectives for our project, including learning the ability to work with different elements of music (particularly rhythm), building awareness of different genres of music, and learning basic digital sound mixing capabilities.”
Justin said the project also helped improve the students’ hand-eye coordination, listening skills, while exploring their creative expression and having fun.
“One of the requirements of the project was to have your voice in it, so—as a joke—I threw a clip in of President Trump speaking,” said the high school student who created the song “Make Music Great Again.” “Unexpectedly, I actually liked the way it sounded with the beat, so I decided to progress further and make it a theme.”
