Residency: Song Writing Workshop

Artist: Stevie Greenwell

Type: Residencies


Students will explore song structure and form, working with lyrics, creative strategies and approaches to songwriting and writing original compositions in groups and individually. We will look at the power and influence music has on our lives and in society. We will dive into the questions “why do you love the music you love” and “what do you want to say and share with your own voice”.  It will culminate in a performance of some pieces written and students talking about their experience in the process.
