In this collaborative songwriting and storytelling program, classrooms will build and gather around a pretend campfire to be taken on an imaginative journey to a place of their choosing. Throughout this journey they will choose various natural elements like weather and terrain to encounter, which will be incorporated into their original songs. A new musical instrument will be introduced each session, as their story unfolds.
By the end of this residency, students will have created a map of the journey and helped write and record 4 songs, which they will get digital copies of.
- Students will learn the vocabulary and steps around building a campfire.
- Students will be able to identify different parts of a string instrument.
- Students will learn about basic weather elements and their relationship to geography.
