create an original Graduation Song
Students work together to write and record an original class song using Garageband. As well as learning about the technical side of audio recording and having a go at building song structures in electronic music, the lyric writing process around the theme of graduation helps students work through their feelings about making the transition to high school.
The sessions will cover:
An introduction to the song writing and recording process to identify the key parts of the song that will be created (including style, theme and audience)
Working with electronic drums, bass and other instrument loops to build an arrangement
Exploring feelings about the transition from primary school to high school
Writing song lyrics
Rehearsing and recording vocals
Simon worked with our Year 7 students to produce a song for graduation. The students were given the opportunity to write the song lyrics and reflect on the transition of moving from primary school into high school. Each student was given a part to work on within the song. Our students were very enthusiastic about working with Simon each week and were thrilled with the final product. Simon was encouraging and actively listened to the ideas put forth by the students. They can’t wait to play the song to their family and friends on graduation night.
