In an era in which many of us are separated by a computer screen, it is more difficult to find ways to express ourselves and our creative ideas. This camp will open a doorway that will teach just one out of a million ways to create something that screams, “YOU!”. Taught by Hawken Upper School’s very own high school graduate Angus Williams, who now attends Boston College and has had years of experience writing music, “Introduction to Creative Songwriting” is an opportunity for students to learn the structure of songs from popular artists such as Jon Bellion, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, The Weeknd, Drake, and more. This course will help students to better understand themselves and their unique strengths and personalities as well as those of the people around them. Over the course of the week, campers will work towards creating a collection of songs that represent who they are.
