Have you ever wondered how musical composers write music? Well, throughout the ages, and even today, there have been many unique techniques for orchestrating music. In this featured, MPR Class Notes video, we team up with Jake Runestad, a local composer, to see what methods he uses in order to give kids a better understanding of how composers make their musical art. "How Do Composers Compose?" is one of 30 videos CRASH+SUES created in a three year collaboration with Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) to teach kids musical literacy.
