School Workshops

About

Song Academy’s fresh new approach is a powerful addition to education, complementing and enriching the National Curriculum in schools and meeting key stage 2, 3 & 4 objectives in the areas of English, Music and Personal/Social education.

Workshops develop pupils’ creative lyric writing, improvisation of melodies, harmonies & rhythms and composition of instrumental parts. Improvisational and compositional techniques are explored at different levels depending on abilities.  In addition, we run workshops on using technology to write songs and performance workshops to maximise the impact of pupils songs both solo and ensemble performances.

Details

School Workshops are run in many different formats from an after-school club hour a week to one-off or a series of workshops of different lengths. Led by one of Song Academy’s session leaders and an assistant.

We also run tailored GCSE Music workshops at schools.  We help GCSE Music pupils prepare for their exams, enriching the music curriculum and helping them achieve their best results.  There are five key areas we focus on:

    • Deepen knowledge & understanding of popular music & songwriting. In depth discussion with our professional songwriters & musicians on the musical elements, musical contexts and musical language of a selection of popular music.
    • Composition workshops developing free compositions – lyrical ideas, melodies, rhythms & instrumentation.
    • Production workshops for using technology to create compositions.
    • Performance workshops for solo and ensemble performances.
    • Recording workshops to record finished compositions to a high standard so engaging the listener.
