Online Family Program: Songwriting 101: The Blues
*The event has already taken place on this date: Wed, 07/22/2020
Join a museum educator on Field Trip Zoom to write a song as a group in this introductory workshop. Music professional Adam Ollendorff will teach the fundamentals of songwriting, including form, theme, and rhyme scheme. Participants will learn a blues song to get the creative juices flowing, then share ideas via “chat” to write an original song. Ollendorff co-wrote “Moonlight, Mistletoe, and You,” the title cut on Keb’ Mo’s 2019 holiday album, which spent four weeks at #1 on the Billboard blues chart. Recommended for ages seven and up, but all are welcome. Guardian is required to be present for children under thirteen.
