You will be working in groups of 5 to compose and perform a piece of music in the Chinese tradition.  You have been given one of the 5 elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Wood, Metal) and the notes G, A, B, D and E (a “pentatonic” scale) to work with.

Don’t forget to bring your instruments in next lesson to perform!
