School of Rock Oak Park is collaborating with the world-famous FitzGerald's to bring you a six-week intensive course in songwriting, collaborative creation, and recording, culminating in both a collection of recorded music (like an EP!) and a performance!
This past year has been more draining, challenging, and emotional than pretty much all of us could have possibly predicted, but we here at the School of Rock think that all that negative energy can turn into a positive by being channeled into making great music! Join us this summer for the incredible, inaugural edition of the School of Rock Oak Park Summer Songwriting Summit!
For this first-of-its-kind experience, School of Rock Oak Park is collaborating with the world-famous FitzGerald's to bring you a six-week intensive course in songwriting, collaborative creation, and recording, culminating in both a collection of recorded music (like an EP!) and a performance! We will be utilizing the legendary venue, FitzGerald's to collaborate, workshop material, and possibly even learn from some very special guest artists. Our illustrious School of Rock staff members will guide you along every step of the songwriting process, and will be an immense source of experience and wisdom on account of their own recording and performing careers! Expect your experience to include extensive instruction and practice in: writing lyrics, building song forms, chord progressions, melody, harmony, workshopping ideas as a group, working with a DAW like Logic Pro, the recording process, post-production, and more!
The Summer Songwriting Summit will take place over the course of six amazing weeks (June 15 - July 23), two days per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00am - 2:00pm) with a concert on Friday, July 23. FitzGerald's will also be providing lunch daily from their new Babygold Barbecue restaurant! The Summer Songwriting Summit is open to students ages 11 and up, and no prior songwriting or recording experience is required. At least a beginner-level proficiency on an instrument or vocals is suggested for prospective students.
So, if you feel like you've just been itching to get your musical voice heard, or if you feel like you want to push yourself to the next level and offer some musical creations to the world, then the Summer Songwriting Summit is for you! This could be just the opportunity you've been looking for to share your creative voice with the community! Plus, it'll be an absolute blast! You won't want to miss out on this exciting and unique new experience!
