Songwriting:

We offer songwriting with or without incorporating an instrument into the lessons. We help students develop their lyric skills, and music theory skills by building songs based on imagery, ideas, story telling, poetry, and self expression. We help students tap into their inner writer, and hone in on their natural abilities. We encourage students to express themselves individually, and find their voice to write their songs with their own words.  Musicality, timing, writing, and musicianship is incorporated in each lesson. Students will have the opportunity to perform their works themselves, or submit their songs to our Garden Street Live band for their end of the session concert. Selected songs will be recorded professionally in our state of the art recording studio.

"We have always found wonderful teachers at Garden Street Music. I have to say the most unique aspect has always been the wonderful ways in which children share what they have learned. From recitals to small studio nights, the atmosphere is designed to be relaxed and supportive as children practice performance skills surrounded by a community. " -Music Parent
