Song Writing Group

The Songwriting Group consists of 8 children who already receive instrument tuition, show a talent for creating music and are interested in the craft of song writing. Using the music editing software ‘Garageband’ and group discussion children use their own melodies to experiment with structure, rhythm, instrumentation and lyric writing. Children in the group work towards the goal of entering a song in the Thorndon School Songwriting Competition. This is held in term 4 every year and all finished songs are available for free download from the Music Room’s website: thorndonschool.bandcamp.com
