Singing the Words: Lyric Writing in the Classroom
Recommended for Teachers of Grades 2-5
Maximum number of workshop participants: 30
Music is a central part of most students’ lives: they listen, they sing, they dance. Teachers can use this natural affinity to motivate and engage students in the classroom. In this workshop, participants explore three different song structures and patterns that students can use to write, sing, rehearse, and perform original song lyrics. This creative process helps students demonstrate their understanding of any content area while experiencing the joy of music. No musical training is necessary. Led by Kennedy Center teaching artist Stuart Stotts.
