We have been looking at different ways to represent our compositions.
First we composed music for percussion instruments using different shapes and sizes to change the dynamics of our compositions.

Then we used the notes A,C and G to write a piece of music for the glockenspiel. Each note is represented by the letter name and a line represents a rest. 

Using improvisation skills.
