What You Will Learn:
In this fun packed program you will:
- Learn how to write a song in a group
- Jam with other musicians
- Improve skills and techniques on your instrument
- Develop your self-confidence
- Experience the process of recording a song
At the end of the week, you will be the proud owner of your own song on a CD (a downloadable MP3 version will also be available to you).
How It Works
In the first day, your teacher will evaluate your level of skill on your instrument. The reason for this is to see what task you will be most suited for. For example, if you are a guitarist, one of your main roles might be to create the chord progression for the song the group will compose. If you are a singer, your role might be to write the words and melody of the song.
Your teacher will also begin an introduction to song writing. You will learn about keys, chord progressions and how to create melodies based on scales. Guitarists are encouraged to check out this article to brush up on their chords prior to the first day. Likewise, drummers should also click here to brush up their basic rhythm grooves.
Unleash your creativity! This is the day you begin writing your song with your group.
On day 3, you will be finishing writing your song with the group. You will also start recording your song at our studios right here in Jannali.
By the end of day 4, you will be finishing recording your masterpiece!
In the last day of your holiday music lessons program, you experience the process of mixing and mastering your song. Mastering is the final polish given to your song. Among many things, this is when the volume of your song is brought up to a professional level. Most importantly, this is the day you get to take your song home on a CD to show your friends and family.
