Hi jmay-
I do a lot of composition with my 5th and 6th graders. I’ve started a curriculum with them called the Young Composers & Improvisors Workshop. You can read about what we do and see some online composition lessons that explain some of the techniques I use:

You can also hear my student’s pieces on iTunes here:

I do a lot with Noteflight (which can also be used on the iPad now) but there a few key apps that i’ve found to be really helpful.
Check these out:

inHarmony (great for teaching how melody relates to harmony)
Playpad (This is allows to kid to literally “play” the staff)
Mapping Tonal Harmony

Let me know if you have any questions
