Read, Rock & Write
This class combines music appreciation with creative writing. Students will start by examining the history and cultural impact of some of the major genres, artists, and albums that define the American musical landscape. In addition to researching an artist of their choosing, students will have the opportunity to learn the foundations of music criticism and draft their own reviews. The class will culminate with a creative writing unit that allows students to experience the songwriting process first-hand through lyrical workshops.
