Retelling Stories Through Song: Students will select and retell a short story and learn how to turn the text into a song.

Through creating and performing they will understand how works of art are produced as they interpret, identify, and perform words that express the theme of the story. Students will be inspired to find the rhythm in the words, recognize, and write rhymes as well as sing, record, and listen back to their composition.

From Text to Lyric to Song:
Singer-songwriter Amy Lowe teaches the art of storytelling through song.

She introduces songwriting techniques as a tool for enhancing writing skills and reading comprehension.

  • Students are encouraged through creative group interaction to identify rhythm and rhyme, to write and tell stories, and turn them into lyric
  • Students will choose a rhyming scheme and learn about song form
  • Students will complete, perform, record, and listen back to their song

Amy combines elements of music, poetry, art, reading, writing, and performance to give students an inside look at what being a composer is all about. Topics and themes grow out of classroom studies, personal experience, fantasy, and environmental sights and sounds.


Sound, Art, and the Music of Words: Singer-songwriter/ Amy Lowe, inspires participants to explore the rhythm of words and learn how to add elements of music to text to create musical compositions.

Through creative group interaction, theater games, and music activities, participants will learn how to demonstrate simple rhythms through chant and body percussion that identifies the feeling and mood of a story. There will be plenty of opportunity to create and perform their original compositions with each other.
