In-Person Songwriting Workshop
As a former music teacher who has been leading songwriting workshops for children across Canada and in China, Will Stroet has developed a fun and effective method to harness children’s creativity in writing songs. His interactive workshops involve critical thinking, creative writing, call and response, actions, presentation skills and performance opportunities. Will teaches students about the basics of songwriting including: lyric, chorus and verse composition; rhythm and rhyme schemes; and melody. By the end of the session, students will have collaboratively composed a folk song that is performance ready. The song topic can be tied to any curricular theme. If the Hootenanny show is booked in conjunction with a workshop, Will and Jessica Mai can lead a half-day songwriting workshop together followed by the show in the afternoon. The duration, number of sessions and classes can be determined between the artist and school. Inquire with artist about full-day or multiple-day workshops.
