I would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who came out to TUMO last week for our songwriters showcase. It was a blast! Here what TUMO said about the event and a few pictures. Recordings are on their way soon.
A workshop exploring the art of songwriting culminated Thursday with a musical showcase at Tumo. Parents, fellow students and invited guests packed into Tumo's recording studio to enjoy the performance of eight original songs developed by participants.
Students in the workshop began working in October with singer-songwriter Thomas Tafejian to fine tune their lyric writing and composition skills. They examined the structures of classics from different genres and experimented with chord progressions, merging lyrics with instrumentation, and creative storytelling. The final series of songs produced by the students was recorded in collaboration with members of Tumo's music production workshop.
Participants also gained essential experience in performance techniques through several intense rehearsals in the run up to this week's final showcase.
