Back To School Songwriting Workshop

Back to School!

Thanks to my alma mater Pennsbury High School for inviting me to speak to the students about songwriting, performing, and the music industry. Hosted by my high school choir pal Lindsey, who now directs the choir. It was wild to walk those hallways again. I got to hug some of the teachers who taught me how to sing, in the room where I learned to play bassoon, and I had the privelege of hearing the voices of the next generation of songwriters coming up.

Here’s a quick & effective songwriting exercise I did with the student group during my workshop:

Take a simple sentence and swap out the verb.
What story can you tell by changing just one word?
