My Story My Voice: Poetry to Song
Available for grades K-12
In this 12-session residency, the students become the storywriters, songwriters and performers of their own original musical masterpieces. Literacy, music and theatrical lessons are employed in the creation of these original compositions.
During these workshops, students will:
Create two original songs from their own stories and characters.
Learn proper vocal technique.
Practice theatrical affect and physical composure.
Develop an awareness of self and of others.
Cultivate musical expression.
At their final session, the students perform their original compositions in front of a live audience.
The integration of literacy builds confidence and engages the students. These classes can be modified to work with all students including those who are falling behind, English Language Learners, and Students with Special Needs.
We also offer short term residencies and single visit workshops.
Workshop topics include:
Basic song creation.
