Music Composition & Songwriting Workshop

This week-long workshop is for boys and girls who want to develop their interest in musical composition and songwriting. Campers will spend the week crafting melodies, understanding harmony, writing lyrics, performing, and recording their songs. By the end of the week, these composers will have a demo recording of at least one piece of their own creation.

The workshop will be limited to 10 students, so register early!

The camp is led by US music faculty member, Joe Hollings. Mr. Hollings is a composer, arranger, music educator, and performer. He is a member of the Cleveland Composers Guild and has had his music performed throughout Northeast Ohio. His arrangements have been released on Meridian Records and performed in West End theaters in London. In addition, he has run an independent dance music label and has mastered recordings at Abbey Road. At US, he teaches middle school students, and directs the High Tops Choral Ensemble.

Extended Day option (before camp only) and shuttle bus services are available.
