Brent Kirby Residency at Midview High School Songwriting Class
The TeachArtsOhio program brings schools together with teaching artists to provide specific, immersive experiences that enrich the existing curriculum. Brent Kirby brings a unique musical background to the choral program that focuses on the creation of original music. Students in each choir are engaged in an eight to ten week process that will culminate in the performance of a class song written by the group in collaboration with Kirby and choral instructor Justin Caithaml. Students selected topics for their song by creating a list of ideas as a class and then narrowing that list to one theme through a class vote. The themes that were chosen include: love, standing up against bullying, what music means to me, and equality. Each of these original songs will be performed at the spring choir concerts at each school. In addition, Kirby is serving as a mentor and coach to the twenty students in Songwriting class at the high school, a new course offering for the 2017-18 school year. Students in this class will receive one-on-one writing lessons and performance masterclasses with Kirby during his time at Midview. We are excited to welcome Brent Kirby to Midview this spring!
