Halloween Contest Submissions
MUSIC STUDENTS: Halloween Scary Story Soundscape Contest.

Win a personalized cozy sweatshirt and a featured spot on Myriad’s Homepage.
Check out these spooky stories in BOX here.
The less scary story for our students ages 4 -7 is called “The Ghost Who Loved To Host”.
The scarier story for all ages is called “The Scarecrow.” We’ve asked our narrator friend Bob, to record these for you, and now we need YOU to create the musical soundscape to give these stories a spooky atmosphere. Student Submissions are due on Halloween, Oct 31. 

Step 1: Choose your story of choice, and listen to it a few times.
Step 2: Check out the sample spooky sounds some of Myriad’s teachers have created on their instruments in this same BOX folder. See if you can make them too, or create some of your own. You can also compose little short melodies to accompany parts of the story you choose.
Step 3: When you’re ready, listen to the story on your headphones / earbuds, and record the sound effects. Save this  file as an mp3. 

Step 4: Label your file with 

  • Your name
  • The Story (either ‘Scarecrow’ or ‘Ghost’)  

Step 5: Upload your soundscape to the same BOX folder. 
Step 6: We’ll listen to them all and choose the winning soundscape, one for each story.
Our audio editors will put your audio track together with the story. 

The winner will be announced the week after Halloween!

DANCE Students: Shadow Dance Contest
