Write, rehearse and record original material. Learn about song structure, arrangement, chord theory, lyric composition, the recording process, and more.
Songwriting & Recording | August 19-23
Our Songwriting and Recording Workshop is a great way for new and current students to take their skills to the next level. This is for intermediate and advanced students. Students will spend 5 days writing and recording with other musicians. Our instructors will guide students through writing and rehearsing original material through exercises on collaboration, song structure, arrangement, melody creation, chord theory, lyric composition, self-expression and more. Students will learn the basics about the recording process, get an introduction to multi-track recording, basic editing, vocal comping, mixing and basic effects. The workshop ends with a Listening Party at the school on Friday afternoon.
Monday-Friday 9 am to 3 pm
Listening party Friday at 3pm at School of Rock Natick
Great for Intermediate to advanced students AGES 10-16 who have had previous instruction
What time does the workshop start and end?
What happens on a typical day?
Private and small group instruction, writing and collaboration in the morning, and rehearsing original material in the afternoon. Introduction to recording, recording, and mixing.
What should students bring?
They should bring a notebook and pen, water bottle, snack, and lunch. We have drums, keyboards, and amps here, so no need to bring those. Drummers should bring drumsticks, guitarists should bring their guitars, bassists should bring their bass guitars, and keyboardists and singers just need to show up.
What's the story with lunch?
Students should pack a lunch each day. Students get 45 minutes for lunch, but they are required to remain at the school.
Is there a performance?
While our Performance Camps are focused around the live show, our Songwriting & Recording camps culminate with a listening party where you can show off what you wrote and recorded.
Where is the Listening Party?
Right here at School of Rock Natick, in our lounge.
Who can I bring to the Listening Party?
We encourage students to invite family (and friends) to the show, but to keep their guest list relatively small, as space is limited.
Where can I find staff bios?
