Building Music Literacy with Guided Composition.
Brophy, Timothy S.
Music Educators Journal, v83 n3 p15-18 Nov 1996
Defines guided composition as composing music with as many prescribed parameters as a young composer needs. Although the melody should never be proscribed, instructional "controls" can be built into the rhythm, length (and repeats), scale, and clef. Includes excerpts from three K-4 compositions using this technique. (MJP)
