In our workshop, you will learn the rules and break them as you wish. While aspiring songwriters will get the guidance they need to put words and melody together in a pleasing way, they will also have the opportunity to broaden their creative horizons and eliminate the fear of writing something "bad." Here are just a few of the activities you'll be able to choose from:

  • Creating "chance music" - melodies and harmonies based on musical games (going fishing, rolling dice, drawing cards, and more)
  • Identifying rhythmic and melodic patterns in the everyday sounds around you, and translating them into compositions
  • Using percussion instruments (or even pots and pans!) to come up with a groove
  • Learning the most frequently used chords in modern pop songs 
  • Discovering the secret to creating songs that sound mysterious
  • Brainstorming ideas for memorable song lyrics and learning how to make them flow
  • Writing a song or creating a composition with the entire group
  • Improvising with the five notes that will sound good virtually all the time

The workshop will conclude with a showcase for family and friends where you'll have a chance to share the new music you've created.
