Write your own song

 

“Listen closely to the songs I play
because the lyrics speak the words
I fail to say”
Ed Sheeran

 

“When you’re singing you can hear
the echo of the audience
singing every single word with you.
That was the big dream I had for myself.
It’s happening”
Taylor Swift

 

Holiday Workshops

Singer/Songwriter Holiday Bootcamp

This course has been increasing in numbers since it was introduced a few years ago so we have split it into two age groups. It is only offered during school holiday periods and aimed at ages 8-11 and 12-18 years of age.

Ideally participants need to be of intermediate vocal and/or musical ability and be able to read music or have a very good musical ‘ear’.  Any instruments they play are warmly welcomed and a keyboard is available for their use.  The focus of the course is writing and co-writing original songs.  Discussion covers all basic elements of song writing such as composition theory, song analysis, style, lyrics, content, harmonies, and musical arrangement. The kids work collaboratively in small groups, duets or ensembles.

The course is both hands on and practical.  Kids are able to record (and taught how to record) their songs and are encouraged to bring i-pads, phones and their own recording devices.

The 8-11 year old’s workshop runs over three days from 10.00am-4.00pm culminating in a concert for family and friends on the last day of the course. Held from Monday 22nd January – Wednesday 24th January 2018.

The 12-18 year old’s course is a four day intensive from 10.00am-4.00pm culminating in a concert for family and friends on the last day of the course. Held from Tuesday 9th January – Friday 12th January 2018.

 

$240 for 8-11 year olds over three, fun-filled, exciting days!

$320 for 12-18 year olds over four intensive, fun-filled days!
