Our Songwriting Workshop is a great means of self expression for our students – in addition to being able to sing well its so important they build the skills so you can create their own style and story. This workshop builds students confidence in songwriting in a very nurturing environment.
Some of the skills and experiences students gain include:
- Having some guidance on where to start! Melody, lyrics, style, story…we can start with the tiny essence of an idea and build the song up within the workshop.
- Developing snippets of melodies, lyrics or song ideas you bring to the workshop and see your own songs come into form!
- Hearing the way other people have approached songwriting
- Guidance from Karen or Nick on developing melody, when to bring in chord structure and how to develop lyric ideas
- Learning about dynamics and how to stylise a song for emotional effect Its always an amazing day and its a thrill to see our young students become songwriters! Some of the songs that are born are truly amazing and a great achievement they will always remember. We look forward to welcoming you!
When starting classes with us:
Before you commence classes, we suggest you consider purchasing our Starter Pack to help you have a little context beforehand and also for use as an ongoing reference when practicing vocal technique in your own time. An ongoing reference tool, it will give you a structure to work with and reinforce the concepts you will consolidate over time within the regular classes.
