Inside King's-Edgehill School

Podcast Potential in Musical Imagery & Poems

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Nov 25, 2019 10:41:01 PM

Adding to the Poetry in Music concept that I contributed to last week's Newsletter is this, another combination, created by Grade 9 student, Jada MacKinnon, from Clark's Harbour, NS. This time, I asked students to make a podcast of their poetry & music, identifying their artistic intentions and also conduct an interview to solicit comments from a classmate regarding their composition and execution.

In her interview, she speaks with her fellow classmate, Polet Sanchez, from Perris, CA, USA.
