Writing Songs to Learn

Artist: Sue Trainor

Type: Assemblies / Performances


An engaging, interactive music assembly where students learn about the musical tools a songwriter uses, and how and why a songwriter uses them to write songs. Sue leads students to see the powerful connection that a songwriter’s musical tools – beat/rhythm, melody, and lyrics have to everyday verbal expression. She also explores the creation of original music for the purpose of communicating personal narrative, informative, or persuasive points. Student volunteers are invited to create lyrics to existing melodies by making a list, using repetition, figurative language and rhyme, and by asking questions.
