Songwriting

“Utah COPA is providing our children with the tools to succeed, not just by using their talents, but by giving them the confidence they need to take on life’s challenges. With regard to the arts – the mentoring that is taking place here is second to none.” – Lawrence & JennyLynn, Parents

Fall Schedule begins August 21st
Students will learn about modern popular music, analyze current hits, and explore song form. They’ll learn the anatomy of a hit song and discover how to use those elements as they write their own songs. They’ll learn how to make a chord chart for a studio session, and make basic demos of their songs. They’ll have opportunities to perform their songs live at showcases.
