What to bring Please just bring your guitar


On this workshop we will explore different styles of song writing. We will look at what makes a great song. Learn which chords work together well. Using scales we’ll learn how to write melodies to harmonise with these chords. Then we’ll write the lyrics. By listening to the songs we love we will try to hear what it is that makes them great songs.

The idea of the workshop is to start with an idea and by the end have written an original song to be played to your parents when they come to pick you up.

You don’t have to be a singer to write a song but if you do enjoy singing you are very welcome. If you have a friend that may not play guitar but enjoys singing mention it to them! If no one in the group is keen to sing it will be down to me… So bring your ear muffs just in case!

The workshops will be in small groups of 3- 4 children.
