Songwriting for 4-12 Grade

Songwriting for 4-12 Grade

Workshop or Residency for grades 4th through 12th

Beginning with what we know, students in this workshop will examine favorite songs and poems and learn how the same rules and techniques we use to write poetry also apply to the lyrics of a song. We’ll learn how to identify and then use different song structures and do fun collaborative writing exercises to develop song ideas. We’ll explore how rhythm, melody, lyrics and chords work together to make a complete song, and we’ll give our songs the musical elements they need to take flight! Then, if time allows, we’ll perform our songs for the class and make recordings to keep. 4-8 workshops.
