Online Family Program: Songwriting 101: The Blues

Wed Jul 22, 2020
11:00am to 11:45am ET

A museum educator leads the group on Field Trip Zoom to write a song in this introductory workshop. Music professional Adam Ollendorff teaches the fundamentals of songwriting, including form, theme, and rhyme scheme.

Participants learn a blues song to get the creative juices flowing, then share ideas via “chat” to write an original song. Ollendorff co-wrote Moonlight, Mistletoe, and You, the title cut on Keb’ Mo’s 2019 holiday album, which spent four weeks at #1 on the Billboard blues chart.
