A Song for Our World: Songwriting Workshop in Williamsburg
3 Friday afternoon sessions: 11/6, 11/13, 11/20 *
At the Williamsburgh Public Library (240 Division Ave, Brooklyn)
Taught by Pepi Ginsberg
For ages 7-12
Our days and nights are filled with songs that help us to understand what we think and feel about the world around us. In this beginner level workshop we learn how to write a song together, one using your words and melodies to create the soundtrack of your day! Together we will learn the basics of songwriting: structure, lyric, melody and hook writing to pen the music and poetry that will make your ideas sing! Over the course of three sessions we will complete a group song, with guidance at each step of the way. At the end of the session we will make a recording to take home. A love of music is desired but no previous experience is required!
