Creating Music Class Review


Creating Music is a class that has long been taught at Gig Harbor High School, although this year it is being taught by a new teacher, Mr. Batcheller. The class itself is quite literally the name of it, with a build-up in skills from the ground up. Bachelor starts with teaching the basics of music theory and gives the students the skills needed to eventually form bands with other students and to either write their own or cover another song. Creating Music requires no previous musical experience, although some experience could make the class easier. Bachelor is an excellent teacher of music and the class is open to anyone wanting to learn the basics of music. When asked, Brodie Hasslinger said his favorite part of the class so far has been “learning about music theory and learning how to apply that to his own music.” A very fun class, Bachelor goes above and beyond to do his best to teach his students.
