This four-session workshop will take students through the fundamentals of songwriting, focusing on lyric writing and matching lyrics with melody.
We will discuss and sing examples of beats, syllables, repetition, rhyme, the use of vivid language and adding new lyrics to familiar melodies. After those basics, we will do songwriting from prompts that allow students free range to write songs from scratch. We will have some keyboards available, and students can bring guitars or other instruments to use in the creative process.
