It is now week two of my Electronic Music composition class. I set up some synths with headphones so the autistic girl could experiment. All she did was say "I don't wanna' play, I don't wanna play!" So I asked her what she wanted to do and she said, "Read a book." I had a talk with her mom after class about what was happening.
Other than that, we had some fun doing sampling and talking about song construction.
The head of the program has agreed to split my class in two sections. I can handle five at a time. And next week, we begin laying down drum grooves!
