Songwriting- Mondays @ 4:30 for 2 hours and 15 minutes
School of Rock's Songwriting program teaches the fundamentals of songwriting, arrangement, music theory, and helps students compose original works. These principles are then applied in a weekly session where students work together on songwriting workshops. At the end of each season, students will have the option to perform their original song(s) as part of the season show or to record a demo.
