Songwriting: From Adele to Ed Sheeran

Do you love creative writing?  Do you play an instrument?  Do you like performing?  Maybe you’ve never written a song or played an instrument, but think it would be fun to try?  This camp is for anyone interested in writing songs, prior experience welcome, but not necessary!

We will explore creative expression through fun writing games and prompts, piano and guitar tutorials, vocal coaching, and group collaboration.  You will learn how to craft song lyrics and set music to your words.  The week long experience will culminate in a performance on the last day of camp.  Learn how songwriters like Adele and Ed Sheeran do what they do!
