Good Counsel Songwriting Showcase
In Good Counsel’s first ever songwriting showcase in 2021, students had the opportunity to freely express themselves by creating original song compositions. To prepare, students used their school iPads to learn about harmonic structure, the process of composing piano accompaniment, bass guitar, smart drum features, percussion instruments, and the process of composing piano accompaniments.
