The music school was filled with music this Easter with our Songwriting Workshops with local musicians Adela Meally and James O’Connor.
Over the course of a two-day workshop, budding songwriters were encouraged to unleash their musical creations under the guidance of songsters James O’Connor and Adela Meally.
The groups, ranging from ages 10 – 17 years comprised of vocalists, poets, and a variety of instrumentalists. They were taken through the steps and techniques of writing their own music and also analysed some of today’s top hits to see what made them hits!
Groups were formed and their songs started to take shape with their final performances happening at the end of the second day. We were delighted to see how far the groups came in such a short time and hope that they will continue with their composing!
