For Rising 6th–12th Graders
Beginning to write a song can feel like a daunting task. With a blank page starring at you, it can be challenging to figure out how to structure the lyrics, create a melody, AND choose music that fits the song. In Intro to Songwriting, we will break down songwriting from being an intimidating project to a real, creative puzzle. Students will learn the fundamentals of song form, chord progressions, and lyric writing while also collaborating with classmates. By the end of the week, students will be equipped with the skills and confidence to help them use songwriting as a form of self-expression and a fun, creative hobby!
