Pro Tips Mega Bundle
This songwriting composition unit covers effective melodic phrasing, lyric crafting, rhyming support, song structures, chord progressions, hooks, planners, prompts, terms, insights on sing-ability – the works. A studio recorded sample song and observation worksheet are also included. Help your students write exceptional songs!
Although this unit focuses on the creation of a single song, it can also be used for multiple individual lessons throughout the year. Individual themes easily cover writing in music class requirements.
As a classically trained professional songwriter, music producer, and songwriting consultant, I have been coaching young songwriters for years. Because of my unique qualifications, I’m able to include cutting edge insider tips and insights that add depth and value to any music appreciation lesson, critical thinking discussion, or writing in music class assignment you may choose for your students.
This unit can be used with students fourth grade through adult. Although it digs deep, lessons are easy to understand – presented with warmth and humor.
