What are students currently learning about? What subjects are relevent? Is there an overriding theme to the school year? This is information that we draw upon to develop topics we will use for songs.
Once a topic is chosen, "brainstorming" to get more details about that topic: descriptions and ideas that will provide the building blocks for the song. Then Dan Hall infuses his vast experience of songwriting to meld those building blocks into a song. Once a song is complete, all of the children will have time to practice and learn each song.
Once these amazing songs are created, its time to share them! Students will be recorded singing their songs, and then mixed into a studio quality recording. When completed, each student will get a digital copy of the album! There can also be a concert to perform the songs in front of friends and family!
