Class Songwriting

Class Songwriting
GITC trained teachers will often take the subject matter they are learning that day, and have the class write topical lyrics to the tune of a familiar song. This activity engages the students on a variety of levels, builds classroom community, and keeps learning fun for everyone. (view small | med | large | orig)

GITC-Sherman Oaks (Training Photo)
This is what a GITC Training looks like. Teachers from the surrounding area commute to the central location where they participate in a free weekly after-school course that gives them the tools and the confidence they need to make music with their students in the classroom.

Learning in 'Open G' Tuning

Learning in 'Open G' Tuning
GITC starts teachers in training off in Open G or 'Taro Patch' tuning - which allows for effortless songwriting & easy 1-finger chords, giving the teacher the ability to focus on the classroom, and not finger acrobatics! (view small | med | large | orig)
