Composition and Songwriting – High School



A forum for young musicians interested in developing composition and songwriting skills. Technical elements of composition are covered in detail (melody, harmony, rhythm, meter, song form, lyrics, instrumentation, orchestration) as students work on writing their own music in a collaborative environment. For all levels.
