Come meet the Composer of the Month
Each month, students can enter the Composer of the Month contest. During the first week of every month, information about a new mystery composer will be posted in Wellwood’s front lobby. Students who figure out the name of the mystery composer can fill out an answer slip and place it in the Composer of the Month drop box located in the front lobby. Students with the correct answer will be entered into a drawing to win prizes, and one winner will be drawn from each homeroom.
I am the composer of the month for February.
I was born on April 18th, 1937, and I will turn 79 soon.
I was born in the city of Tokyo, Japan.
These are three of my most famous musical compositions:
3. Dream of the Cherry Blossoms
I first became famous for playing the marimba, an instrument that looks like a very large xylophone. I helped the Yamaha company design the type of marimba that most marimba players use today.
Who am I?
Please write your name, your homeroom teacher’s name, and the name of the composer of the month on one of the slips of paper below and put it in the box next to this picture. You may only put one answer in the box. If you have the correct answer, your name will be entered into a drawing for a prize!
