Song Writing Project T1 2020
Over this term, children will explore lyrics and musical composition. This project will focus heavily on the lyrical side and will teach children to develop the flow and richness of their lyrics. This will be done by studying existing songs and changing the lyrics to write a new song that fits the existing melody. We will move on to existing pieces of instrumental music and write lyrics for those. Children have total freedom of the lyrical topics they wish to write about, as long as they are age appropriate.
If children have knowledge of how to create original compositions, they will be free to create these as well. This is not my strength, but I am happy to support this as much as I can!
