"Songwriting Masterclass - RECORDING PROJECT" with Rach Brennan | Ages 13-18yrs | Tuesdays 4.30-6pm | SEMESTER TWO 2019

360.00

This semester, students will have the opportunity to record an original song in an 18-week long project that will involve writing, creating an idea for a musical release and performing!

Following the success from Rach’s masterclasses where songwriters have been working on lyric writing, developing chord progressions and shaping melodies, this will build on these skills with a continued emphasis on collaboration, developing musical relationships with like-minded people and building confidence in young musicians. 

Rach Brennan is a local singer-songwriter who performs her original songs at festivals and gigs around Australia and internationally. Her debut album will be launched later this year.

Tuesdays 4.30 - 6pm at Bluebird House (Cnr Carr and Swanston Streets, South Geelong). Commencing 16th July until 26th November for Semester Two 2019.

Subject to minimum numbers.

In this workshop YOU WILL:

  • Record your own original song with renowned producer and musician Levi Anderson (The Kite Machine)

  • Work as a team with your fellow songwriters to decide on what the release of these songs will look like eg. CD, SoundCloud, Spotify!

  • Have the opportunity to perform to raise funds for the recording of the music and learn about local grants and how a musician in the music industry would work towards this goal

  • Write original music, exploring yourself as a musician and the genre/s of music that excite and inspire you as an original artist

  • Meet like-minded people your age and collaborate with these people to broaden your musical and songwriting knowledge

  • Have the opportunity to perform in front of others and learn techniques to harness your nerves to create a meaningful and authentic performance

  • Sing! Everyone will sing and develop their singing by learning about melody and harmony, and how to use these in your songwriting process

  • Learn how to play an instrument and develop skills you may already have on an instrument. This may be a physical instrument, your voice or with a computer app or program if you so choose - or all of the above!

  • You will grow as a musician, as a creative and as a person through exploring your capabilities in the wonderful world of songwriting.

In teaching songwriting and music, I work on building trusting relationships which I feel inspires confidence within my students, helping them to learn and grow without fear! I believe that learning music practically, and authentic music experiences such as performance, playing instruments and singing together is the essence in building our next generation musicians. My passion for playing, writing and teaching music drives my desire to instill my skills and knowledge into others with the hope that it will enrich their lives as it has mine.
