Students learn how to compose music of various genre’s through the development of lyrics as well as other aspects of songwriting such as: the development of melodies, chord progressions and arranging. Emphasis is on guiding the young songwriter towards their expression of musical ideas in written form while learning musical notation, rhythm, melody, harmony and tone color. Songwriters will be encouraged to complete and submit songs for FAC Recording Studio production.
All instruments and vocals are invited to participate in group rehearsals for over an hour each week. Instructors from various disciplines rotate weekly to advise students as they collaborate to rehearse music from various genres. The group will prepare to perform publicly to showcase their individual as well as group talent. When a song is performance-ready, students will have an opportunity to record the song with a sound engineer in our professional recording studio on-site, Studio413.
