On the online song camp, students will familiarise themselves with co-writing as a working method under the guidance of expert instructors. The course has a particular focus on studying teamwork skills for writing music, and familiarising students with the basics of songwriting. During the song camp, students will create songs for artists. The camp will take place completely online and test new working methods.
By the end of the study unit, students will have a realistic understanding of co-writing, working with collaboration partners, and their own strengths as team members.
The course will be carried out remotely through Zoom. Students will be divided into 4-5 groups, each with 3-4 members, to attend the camp. Each group will have one member with a sufficient skill level and equipment to record the songs created on the camp.
The song camp’s leads will come from record companies and/or artists. In addition to students, two professional composers will attend the camp as mentors, who will give instructions and feedback to each group.
Anyone who lives in Southern Ostrobothnia and makes music can apply to the course. The content is aimed especially at professional musicians or music creators as well as goal-oriented amateur music makers.
