Songwriting for Kids
Learn how to write a song! You don’t need to play an instrument. We will cover basic songwriting craft, listen to a variety of songs written in many styles throughout history, and work on creating our own individual pieces. We’ll even try our hand at group songwriting (it’s really fun to do!). At the end of each multi-week session you will record your song and take home a digital copy for yourself.
