Songwriting Club

Seattle, Washington

"The songwriting club brings the wonderful experience of creating lyrics and music through video conferencing, providing a creative vehicle for intellects and imaginations.  The actual video conference songwriting session begins with our songwriter/facilitator reminding the students to respect each other's ideas.  Next the song's subject is chosen.  Our songwriter/facilitator suggests to the children that topics be taken from something that they have studied in school."
