Composer la présence

Give your students a behind-the-scenes look at songwriting: lyrics, music, and performance.

The “Composer la présence” project allows young people to familiarize themselves with the steps involved in writing, composing, and performing a song. Exploring the creation of music helps young people understand the singer-songwriter’s process and the artistic choices that must be made.

School levels: High school 1 to 5 and Accueil beginner, intermediate and advanced.

Educational Approach to the Project

Workshops and a performance give students an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the steps involved in writing, composing, and performing a song. Workshops immerse students in the creative process and provide them with the knowledge and tools related to the discipline. At the project’s conclusion, students will understand the work that an artist must accomplish before taking a performance to the stage.
