Camp Details, Songwriting 1

This immersive camp experience is for kids going into grades 6-9 (fall 2017) who write songs or want to, and for musicians who want to play original music instead of cover songs. Students will write, arrange and perform their songs, and receive a recording of the show. Learn the techniques that the bands you love use to create the songs you listen to through workshops on lyrics, form, arranging and more. Lead teachers: Tennessee Mowrey and J.T. Locke

Suggested minimum of one year of lessons (any instrument or voice).

See our Summer Camp FAQs page for more details about the after-camp activities, what campers need to bring, our drop policy and more.
