At Compose Your Own String Quartet, kids learned the elements of musical composition: melody, bassline, musical texture, and expression.  Using craft supplies, they created visual representations of what those parts of their string quartets would sound like.  On the last day of camp, a Magik String Quartet came to read the brand-new scores and to help the children assemble new works of music they composed.  

4 Magik teachers taught campers all about the art of composing string quartets, and on the final day of camp the Magik string quartet came to play their new compositions.
