Last Wednesday, October 28th, ten third and fourth grade students came together to write songs!!!! For 3 days, we wrote our own songs, worked with an award winning songwriter, and performed our pieces for our Cluster One peers.
The 4 pictures above were taken at Nola Studios in Manhattan. At Nola Studios we worked with professional songwriter, Michael Mott on the songs we created. Each of us brought our song charts, and sang our melodies to Michael. Michael worked with each songwriter on the tone, style, and tempo of his/her song. Every songwriter came away inspired and with a new direction to take their songs.
On Friday, back at Renaissance, we gathered around the piano to practice our songs for our presentation, Halloween costumes and all.
