About Lyrics & Songwriting Camp

This camp is for anybody who likes music, song writing, or wordplay – but especially for those who are interested in how all three come together. We will spend the week exploring the musicality of words and the magic of pairing lyrics with notes. From poetry to parody to original song writing, we will look at some of our favorite lyrics through fresh eyes, learn some new styles and strategies, and work to write our own songs! Whether you are an accomplished musician, a devoted poet, or just a kid with headphones and a notepad, you are welcome here. This camp is for those of you who want to be behind the scenes on songs, as well as those who crave the stage! Come to listen, come to learn, and come to create your own original lyrics and music. Led by Waterford teachers, Harmony Button and Alex Gould.

** Previous musical experience helpful, but not necessary
