Songwriting, Performance & Recording workshops
Songschool is our longest running workshop programme. These workshops are based on songwriting (words & music) and can include recording, performance or music technology elements. There is a strong focus on collaboration, creativity, confidence building and self expression with the students. The ability to play an instrument is NOT necessary and the use of technology is often discretionary.
Ideally suited to Transition Year, JCSP and LCA Programmes but can easily be adapted for primary and other secondary school needs.
Songschool workshops can be delivered in 1 or 2 days, depending on requirements. Participating students receive their work on CDS or digitally.
Songschool workshops are generally facilitated by two tutors ( ratio of 1 tutor :12 students). Click on workshops below for more information.
Songschool tutors are located in several counties including Clare, Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kilkenny, Meath, Wicklow & Westmeath.
