    Singer/Songwriter Holiday Bootcamp

    This course is offered to students aged 12-16 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.  Students are able to record (and taught how to record) their songs and are encouraged to bring i-pads, phones and their own recording devices.
