Feedback form is now closed.
Taking a look at music you may have heard a hundred times but never really listened to, this workshop will dive deeper into the meaning behind the melody and analyze the different strategies we can learn from these timeless tunes. Using hits through the ages, we will discuss techniques and examples to teach poetry, creative writing, and literary devices. Whether we're looking at enduring classics or present-day pop hits, this workshop will give you an arsenal of toe-tapping material to pull the students into the literary arts!
