Compose Yourself! by James Stephenson has the perfect blend of education and entertainment. Students learn about the instruments of the orchestra and even get to participate in composing a piece using three elements of music- melody, harmony, and rhythm. The 45-minute program is lighthearted and comical and the musicians really get into the theatrical aspects of it. It's an interactive, educational and entertaining show designed to introduce children of all ages to the instruments of the symphony orchestra. Available in two versions: Original 15 Player and Full Orchestra. Visit www.stephensonmusic.com/education for more information.
