Activity: Write Your Own Song!


When it comes to writing a song there is no wrong or right way to do it. But there are tools that can help you come up with your lyrics. Here are some tips and tricks to get you going.


Step 1: Choose the musical genre- that means you get to decide on the style of music you want for your song. Will you be writing lyrics for a pop song? Rock ballad? Country? Rap?

Step 2: Now think about what you want to talk about in your song. Pick a topic and the feeling you want your song to have. Will your song be about love? Friendship? Growing up? A big disappointment? An exciting experience you had? Think about how you want people to feel when they hear your song? Happy? Sad? Silly?

Step 3: Grab a pen and paper, it’s time to start writing!

Step 4: Revise, revise, revise, until you are happy with it.

Step 5: Share it with your friends or loved ones!
