This introductory chapter discusses how music composition could be taught to students in such a way that they will find pleasure in music making. Music teachers, as regulated by National Standards for Music Education (NSME), are expected to make music composition learning more creative for students. The NSME provides supporting documents to implement its standard of music education, and appropriate teaching materials, lesson plans, and activities. Music lesson plans are basically composed of activities which let students define music and music composition, and enhance their creative thinking, so that later on they may produce their original creative music compositions.
