The Next Big Hit?

This class explores the dynamic process of writing and developing a song. Students will engage in creative activities, both collaboratively and independently, that allow them to develop their song idea into a finished product, which they then have the opportunity to pitch to a musician or band. If the musician or band accepts the song, students will help guide the production of the song. Additionally, the class incorporates music appreciation, improvisation, lyrical development, dance, and interviews with guest songwriters. Students are not required to play an instrument; however, if a student does play an instrument, it may be incorporated.
