Local Artist gives Workshop to Music students
by Trish Gallagher - Monday, November 11, 2013
Saint John musician, Brent Mason, spent a week with grade 10 and 11 music classes where he delivered a songwriting workshop. Students were first introduced to the origins of rock music and then divided into groups to commence the creative process. At the end of the week, four songs were written, recorded, and performed by the students. The songs varied greatly in style and them- the result of brainstorming and collaboration of talents.
