Song Writing - 7th Grade

Songwriting is a rewarding form of expression. This class provides young students with basic tools to “unlock the secrets” of harmony, lyric writing, melody and song form. Entry level piano/ keyboarding will be introduced as well as Hookpad a cloud based music app. In combination, these tools will act as a sketchpad for an easier more intuitive method of discovering and building sounds that work for the writer in their own ever-developing style of music.

This class is essentially project based in that students will primarily demonstrate understanding of the course standards through the creation and performance of original song material and tasks. As this is a beginning class, students will need to spend some time understanding the vocabulary of music and the basics of how music works.
