JY17-M31 NOTE: Meets at Rochester Contemporary School of Music, The Old Pickle Factory Building, 1 Grove Street, Suite 122A in Pittsford. Inquire about transportation if needed. Do you constantly have a tune playing in your head? Are you always listening to music? Do you wish you could write your own songs, like your favorite artists? Well, now you can! Under the guidance of professional songwriters, musicians, and poets, you will be led through the creative process of writing your own song. Students will participate in poetry and songwriting workshops, learning to tune their poetry into lyrics. Special guest musicians and songwriters will enhance the experience and broaden students’ perspectives. By the end of three days, each student will have at least one set of polished lyrics. The final two days will be spent putting the words to music, rehearsing, and recording. No previous experience with music is necessary. Accommodations will be made for writers who are not singers! If you would like to make a request for an accommodation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 10 days prior to the event.
