October 1: Week 3 - EVOLVE:
Every day for the next week, take time to journal for ten minutes. This exercise isn’t meant for you to write a song just yet. The journaling exercise focuses on writing what’s on your mind without stopping to edit. Allow your creativity to flow (without disruptions) during the ten minute exercise. After the writing exercise, go back to your journal and highlight any phrases and/or ideas that could be used in a song. Words, phrases, and ideas from this exercise will be used to develop a song over the next six weeks. Share creative moments from your writing with the group.
Option 1) Rewrite a song - using the melody and phrasing from the original and re-write the lyric
Option 2) Rewrite a song - keeping the lyrics only and reimagining the melody and production.
**Keep in mind the “Song Structure”**
Create a song vision board to share next week. Use videos, color schemes, photos, etc
to develop the content of the idea before writing the song. Utilize the following to help create your vision board: “Common Song Ideas”, “Developing A Song - Typical Questions”, and “Story & Emotion”.
October 15: Week 5 - TEAM
Moderator will pair students into groups of two for a co-write. Take your ideas from
Week 3 & 4 to develop into a song. Each co-write should focus on finishing each creators' individual song ideas. Each co-write should produce two songs to present the following week.
