Seventh grade Riverhead Middle School band students have been busy strengthening their music skills through the 100-Point Music Challenge.

As part of the distance learning activity, music teacher Crystal Crespo asked students to compose a song using the app GarageBand and upload it to Google Classroom. The song could be of any genre and had to include multiple layers of music.
