Try writing Canons on the front board with your AP class.
Start with a harmonic progression first. (1 -2 chords per measure)
Compose one long 16 measure melody, spread out over 4 staves. Make sure the melody fits with the harmony.
Assign entrance numbers at measures 1, 5, 9, and 13.
Either write lyrics, or use solfege or a neutral syllable.
Divide the class into 4 groups, count it off and have fun.
