Songwriting for Community Choirs with Ali Burns
Ali Burns is a songwriter and arranger who loves to write for community choirs – songs with lush beautiful harmonies and simple text that are easy enough to learn by ear but satisfying and special to sing. Many of her songs have found their way into the repertoire - and hearts - of singers across the UK, and increasingly the USA and Australia. She has also written many songs for education settings: preschool, mainstream and special needs. Her songs are published by Faber, Signalong and Oxford University Press.
This weekend will look at ways of devising text, great tunes, harmonies, structure and crafting of songs for choirs and singers. This is an introduction to the frameworks and techniques Ali uses in her work - participants will have a chance to develop song ideas on their own and as part of the group and will come away with a songwriting pack of worksheets to take home and try out in their own writing.
