[VIDEO] Practical guidance for using songwriting in inclusion work
Music tutors and workshop leaders Victoria Port and Ije Amaechi share practical guidance, tips and insight into teaching songwriting. This CPD is for anyone interested in delivering songwriting, whether you are an instrumental teacher or workshop leader. It’s particularly helpful for tutors developing inclusive practice.
They look at case studies of young people they have taught both in one to one and group sessions, play examples of young people’s songs and go into detail about how to help a young person write their own lyrics and melodies. They also demonstrate as the ‘teacher and student’ how this could look in a lesson and show how tutors can come up with different chord progressions to write with.
