Songwriting with Dafe!

Children aged 9 - 12 years are invited to join performer and spoken word artist Dafe Orugbo to create their own song. In this introduction to songwriting, you will learn the basics of songwriting, exercises to kick off the creative writing in music process and explore ways to make your music stand out from the crowd!
