Songwriting Begins With Richmond 4th Graders

This week I began working with 4th graders during their music time at Richmond Elementary! I'll help each of the three classes complete their own song over the next six weeks. This year I'm working with the art department at OSU to integrate visual arts into my process. The students will be doing an art project to help inspire their songwriting! 

Yesterday the whole fourth grade had music together so we could talk about what to expect.

I met with my first class today and we broke into small groups to brainstorm.

The kids were fantastic - they were very excited and got right down to work on lots of great ideas!

This residency is funded in part by a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council. I'll post more as we progress!!
