Run by Excite Academy

These fortnightly two-hour workshops are designed to help develop and enhance song writing skills in a group setting with added opportunities to perform and develop their repertoire.

Students will have the opportunity to bring songs they have written or works in progress and perform to the group and receive constructive feedback.

Skills covered in class:

* Music Theory

* Scansion/ rhyme scheme (Learning about rhythmic patterns in each line of a song and different poetry strategies.)

* Lyricism (Brainstorming games, and songwriting strategies to overcome writer's block, and how to use grammar in a song e.g. - Metaphor, adjectives.)

* Instrumentation/Arrangement. (Some basic skills to help them set their lyrics to music and write a melody, how to write the song down with the chords over top, chords structures, scales and how to create emotivity and prosody through the relationship between the lyrics melody and arrangement.)

* Recording and notation. (basic skills on how to use Sibelius and logic, writing sheet music and how to record a demo.)

* Gigging and gear. (We will introduce the student to performance opportunities and actively be getting them involved. They will learn how to set up sound equipment and how to take care of it, and apply for a busking permit. How to find events needing musical entertainment and putting together a press kit to promote themselves.)

And so much more!
