We'll learn about chord progressions and how we can use them to convey emotions in music to make a lyric sound sad/happy/excited/angry, etc. We will discuss rhyme schemes and how rhyme factors into a song lyric. We will look at identifying different rhyme schemes in various songs and learn about different ways we can make words rhyme (with fun rhyming games!). We will also learn how to co-write by working on writing a song together as a class and writing our own songs...everyone is encouraged to participate!
