How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
In this week-long songwriting course, we will go over the elements of creating a song. Our goal will be to use the ideas discussed during the week to create original songs individually and with the group! We will discuss: Musical Styles Melody, Harmony, and Lyrics Keeping an Inspiration Journal for Lyrics Finding Your Style and Your Voice Scales— Major and Minor and how to use chords to set the mood in a song Song Form — Verses, Choruses, Bridges, Intros and Outros How to Write Verses...
Students will leave the camp with an understanding of harmony, melody, and lyric, as well as being able to recognize song form. Students will have created an inspiration journal to keep ideas in, and will begin to have a deeper understanding of their own personal musical style and taste. Students will be encouraged to continue finding inspiration and writing songs as well as continue with suggested listening of songwriters.
- Students must have a passion for music and interest in songwriting - Students will need a journal, composition notebook, or three-ring folder with loose leaf paper. - Students will need a pencil or pen for the week
If requested by the parent, I will provide an informal assessment of their child's performance.
3 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
