LOWRY OLAFSON
 

A Songwriting Workshop, Recording Session and School Concert

A hands-on experience to unleash creativity, and build self esteem as students work together to create a song the whole school can call their own.

This unique, interactive program has enabled over 10,000 students across western Canada to write some 400 songs, and Lowry's afternoon concert has inspired and entertained 80,000 more.

  • Students need no musical background to participate, and
  • Students may be selected from one class or a cross-section of grades.
  • The school retains the rights to use the song on it’s website, as a fundraiser or however it wishes.
  • The entire day is a fun-filled, engaging learning experience.

WHAT THE DAY LOOKS LIKE

The Songwriting Workshop:

  • An educational and engaging three-hour morning Songwriting Workshop for up to 35 students from grade 1 -12.

The Recording Session:

  • Once the song is finished, the class rehearses the song and records it onto a CD.
  • The CD remains with the school and is added to Lowry’s website at: www.songsbykids.ca, where it is available for free download.

50 Minute Afternoon Concert for the whole school (K-12)

  • The Songwriting Class performs their new song for the whole school. Parents welcome!
  • Lowry performs an array of entertaining and topical songs, gives a student a violin lesson and plays Pachelbel’s Canon, built layer by layer on violin, as the audience watches.
  • Grande Finale: with the lyrics on the overhead projector, the songwriters teach their new song to the whole school.
