What better memento for leavers than a song written by themselves about their time at school and looking ahead to an exciting new beginning.
Our professional songwriters help your pupils write a song which captures their memories and experiences of school life. We believe that it’s a valuable experience for leavers to reflect on their time at school – the achievements, friendships, feelings of being part of the community, challenging times and the fun times. There are many roles to play in the songwriting process – lyricists, musicians, producers, idea generators and organisers, so all pupils can be engaged and contribute.
It’s a fun activity which develops many crucial life skills, vital for creating their future. For example – communication, listening, giving feedback, emotional intelligence, team working, influencing skills, creative thinking and leadership skills.
In addition, the song is a powerful PR tool for schools to promote your school in a unique way.
There are 3 main parts to the songwriting process. First, we provide a framework for your English teachers and Music teachers to help pupils create initial lyrical ideas and choose a style of music for their song. Second, we hold a 3 hour songwriting workshop to create the lyrics, melodies and composition. Third, we create a backing track and record the vocals of a small group of pupils.
