Clough, Geoff Cookie Songwriting Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Cookie Songwriting is where I teach children how to write songs using cookies! I have a treble staff table with a cookie treasure chest. I call a child up to let them pick a bag of 5 cookies to use in creating their own song. Placing them on a line or space as I direct them along regarding high notes, low notes, etc. When they have their cookies/notes down I copy them over onto a musical inspiration pad (manuscript paper) and play them back their melody. Then I set to creating the harmony & note lengths. I ask the child/children what styles do they like? Country Rock, Ska, Hip Hop, etc. Then I will play the song back to them in that style. The children love it and most start to dance to their own song. Afterwards I help the child name it & I give them their sheet music with their name on it & copyright year. :)
