School Holiday Program for Kids

Songwriting, recording, pre-production and post production, album sleeve design and CD production. Prepare with ideas and inspiration. Bring an instrument if you like. Practice singing if you sing.

The day will start with by brainstorming a song topic as a group. Workshop attendees will be capped at 4 kids so that each child will have an opportunity to offer their suggestions and also work as a musical team. A simple pop song structure will be established lyrically.

Morning tea to rest our creative minds.

We will now look at adding the musical content to the words. Each child will choose an instrumental part between drums, bass, lead instrument and vocals. The instruments may be looped samples to be chosen by and manipulated digitally by the students or in cases where students play an instrument or sing, we will record these parts live.


Once the instrumental and vocal parts are laid down we will begin post production where the children will choose the best parts of all the recordings and we will add effects and production to our song.

Finally we will use a Avery CD labeling software to create our sleeve art and burn the track to the disk and usb.
