Composition & Song Camp 2014

Comp and Song 2013

Composition and Song $225

July 21 – 25, 9 am – 4 pm (extended care available)

Have a song you want to sing? A story you want to tell? Through a series of writing workshops and the study of different elements of music, aspiring songwriters and singers put their ideas to music. In a fun and practical way, campers are introduced to aspects of songwriting – like hooks, riffs, harmony, and rhythmic accompaniment, chorus-verse format, basic chord progressions, intros and outros, rhyming and storytelling. By the end of the week campers will have written and/or collaborated on the creation of original songs and arrangements. Kids who already have basic guitar chording are encouraged to bring their guitars. The week ends with a world premiere performances of our songwriter’s compositions!

  • campers constructing, stringing and playing diddley bos (home-made instrument)
  • making/eating pizza (homemade by campers from a wood-stove) in Dufferin Grove Park (yummmmm)
  • campers writing lyrics for a song (we had individual and collaborative writing workshops)
  • some of the original lyrics-charts
  • performance day & the after-performance party with parents, friends, watermelon and (more!) pizza
