Lyrical Connections: A Residency for Language Arts and Music Exploration (2nd-12th grade)This residency teaches songwriting as both a language arts exercise as well as a musical expression. The Six Step Song Writing process designed by artist Aaron Fowler is taught. The six steps include: 1) Theme/topic; 2) Key words; 3) Rhyming words; 4) Form; 5) Rhythm; and 6) Melody. Each of the six steps is discussed as well as practiced in interactive ways. Students are given "homework" each night to support student-directed examples. The culmination activity is a performance that includes both students' songs as well as songs by the artist.

Thank you very much for working with our students this year. As a talented and very approachable adult, you made a positive and lasting impression. You adapted lessons quickly to match learning and emotional abilities. Lessons were fun and full of lighthearted, no pressure, laughter and direction. The kids have left this year with a sense of "I CAN."
