Hi Liilian,

Perhaps your piece didn't save? Or did you start a new one? The piece that the link brings me to is the same piece as before with sharps and flats and a 4/8 time signature. Is there another spot I could look?

I love that you play a piano tablet game. Which one? How can you use that in your composing?

Hi Lilly! It is Trudy. By the way, your piece is awesome. I am not lying!

Dear Matt,

I changed my piece a little bit. I switched my instruments an time signature 2/4. I got rid of all the flats and sharps. Miss Greene helped me start on C.

I play on a tablet a piano game and I am learning recorder in music class.

Any more suggestions?
Thank you,

Hi Lillian,

My name is Matt, and I'll be working with this Opus. I'm excited to see that you're writing with us! Do you play a instrument? I love your idea of changing it to a french horn and trumpet. That will be fun.

To change the time signature, you can click right on it. Then a box will pop up and you can specify the time signature you want. I would say 4/4? I think would fit what you've written so far.

I like the beginning of a melody you have. Remember, melodies are made up of steps and skips and you've got a great mix of both in there! I would suggest not using any sharps or flats just yet. Your home tone is C, and try to treat your melody like an adventure. You start at home (C), then journey away from home with a series of steps and skips, but then return to home at the end. Try it out and see what you come up with!

Do you have an idea about what you want to write music about? Is there a story or a concept that you really like?

I'm so happy to be working with you, and I'm already looking forward to what you'll come up with next. Let me know if you have any questions.
