Project Create DC

Music, Lyrics & Melodies

with Amber Mimz


Wednesdays from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

AGES 14 -24

Students will learn to observe, analyze and apply the elements of songwriting to create original material. Students will be introduced to song structure, melody, cadence, themed writing, song editing, how to think like a songwriter and so much more in Music, Lyrics & Melodies: Songwriting 101 with Amber Mimz. The root of our examples and structure will stem from R&B, Soul, Hip hop and Trap music to first, relate to what students currently listen to and second, to help students learn the various processes behind songwriting in sounds they already identify with. Guest artists will also be invited to share their professional and industry experience with students, especially as they develop ideas on how to share their music on various platforms (itunes, soundcloud, spinrilla, social media etc). We will also combine elements of production and recording to create our own original material.
