Songwriting and Production

Project Description

Song Writing and Production workshops are run during school holidays to introduce young people to the skills involved in recording and mixing their own track in a professional environment. Students spend two days learning and applying a number of song writing techniques including lyrics, groove, beat and chord progression. They work on creating a drum and base loop, over which they write and arrange an original song. Students then move to the studio to learn the basics of multi-tracking, live recording and mixing. They lay down and instrument on a multi-track recording and then perform and record their song live. The final day is spent doing a mix down.
