Songwriting for Kids

Many young musicians are bursting with creative energy that can be transformed into original music! There are many songwriting approaches and techniques that will enable musicians of all skill levels to explore their inner creativity. This class will explore various techniques and approaches to songwriting through the study of musical styles and genres, lyric and poetry games, and performance. Students will complete the class having written a new original work to perform for family and friends.

Previous Experience: Students should have basic comfort on their instrument or vocal range. The ability to read sheet music is not required, but basic knowledge of chords would be helpful.

*Session 8 is the Songwriting Performance! Friends and family welcome!

How to prepare

Materials: Students should come prepared to the first session with a song (in progress is OK!) to work on, as well as a folder for music, their instrument, and a pencil to each session.
