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.
