Songwriting

Grades 5+
DescriptionMaterials

Calling all songwriters! Are you looking for a way to improve your songwriting skills? Join CLRC’s Songwriting course this Fall! Students will study song form, rhyme scheme, and effective melodic patterns to improve their craft. Students will receive feedback and mentorship from Mrs. Scott, as well as collaboration and inspiration from their fellow classmates. By the end of the semester, students will have written their own original lyric sheet, composed an original song, and recorded/filmed their final performance.

Students will need equipment for writing, arranging, and producing a song: recording mic, editing software, and camera (student can use a smartphone for all of these), as well as access to a computer and the student’s instrument of choice.

Prerequisites: Recommended proficiency on a secondary instrument (piano/guitar/etc)
