Year 7 Music Acceleration students at Indro recently took on the role of composer for a Marvel movie, writing a fanfare for the opening logo sequence.

Teacher Kristy Hinch said students were given a basic set of piano chords and asked to write their own version of the fanfare sequence that was between 26 and 30 seconds long and could be played by live musicians. Students studied the musical features of various fanfares, explored music theory including writing for various instruments and using chords to write individual parts. They also had to master the notation software.

Ms Hinch said the talent displayed by the student composers was amazing.

"For them to move from never having used the software to this quality of work in five weeks shows the level of talent and commitment in the group," she said.

Elise, who plays saxophone and piano, said she enjoyed the task of changing the theme song of a series that she really loved.

"I enjoyed creating my Marvel Fanfare as it was something I had never done before and it gave me an opportunity to try something new," Elise said.
