Jitsu Welschmeyer
Jitsu is a rising junior at Newport High School. He enjoys music because he can express himself in ways that no other art form could achieve. At school, he is a part of the Newport Band as a trumpet player. In his spare time, he likes to read and play games.
Bryan Kim
Bryan is a rising junior at Newport High School. He has had extensive experience with music, being a part of the Newport Band and qualifying for the WMEA High School All State Band on clarinet.  He enjoys music because of how it feels like an escape from reality. Other than music, he also likes doing math and playing video games, specifically gacha games.


Have you ever wondered how people put together individual sounds to create what we call “music?” Our ears can generalize the sound of a piece by looking at a score, and our eyes can vaguely visualize the score of a piece we listen to. A “thinking musician” is able to connect these two skills and truly understand the behavior of a song and use that knowledge to create a tune of their own. Starting from the basics and building up from there, we hope to teach the concepts and skills to analyze and compose music to encourage the growth of “thinking musicians.”

Topics: Staves, Musical notation, Scales, Modes, Intervals, Chords, Melody & Harmony, etc.

Prerequisites: An interest in music
