February 27 - 1:00 pm
In our Songwriting and Music Production program at Ignite, participants explore the basics of music composition as a means of creating their own original musical compositions. After learning the basics of audio editing software and recording equipment, participants create original loop-based songs inspired by their own personal stories, and are encouraged to use Fifth House Ensemble musicians to perform the songs. Additionally, clients of this program learn about music distribution, basic marketing, and public speaking skills to assist them in sharing their creativity outside of the classroom. The residency concludes with a presentation for other clients and Ignite staff in which the participants debut their original works and share stories about the compositional process.
Inclusion is at the heart of the Ignite curriculum. Highlighting the unique voices that contribute to songwriting helps deepen client understanding of the interconnected parts of the music industry at large. Our goal for this residency is not just to create songs, but to give the participants the opportunity and knowledge to distribute their forms of artistic expression to the world.
