Students learning about the structural possibilities of a song.

Sixth graders in Bernadette Bober’s room at Race Brook School are participating in a songwriting workshop.

This program was made possible by a grant awarded to RBS from the  Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation.

Students were asked to brainstorm freely as a whole and then broken into smaller groups to allow for the development of themes, lyrics, and melodies.

The groups were offered guidance as needed but encouraged to work as a team to flesh out their ideas. This gets them out of their comfort zone and fosters cooperation and team building.

This program is called “Write it Out”  started by Guilford-based singer/songwriter Laura Clapp. She is a Berklee College of Music graduate, mother of two and performer who loves working with children through song.
