STYLE: Songwriting Through Youth Literature Education is a wonderful way to spark interest in reading and literature through the magic of music. STYLE Teaching Artists will deliver a power packed 50-minute assembly, or a more extensive residency program where your students will create an original song inspired by a popular book. The song co-written by your students and the Teaching Artist, will be available to cherish for years to come. STYLE builds in learning from the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Skills connecting reading, writing and music while inspiring communication and collaboration.  This will make any STYLE program both educational and fun!

...our students really owned and loved their musical creation. We even performed the song for the parents at the Spring Performance a week later, and I heard some of them singing it as they left for summer break on the last day of school. I highly recommend this program to any group of people who need a fun and dynamic way to process the written word.

Putting their poetry to music and hearing it sung by professionals was exciting and educational. I couldn’t ask for a better way to entice students into the joys of literature.

The benefits of your program are innumerable and the interactions with the students were excellent.  Everyone had a great time and all of the student can't wait until we repeat the program again.  Your club members were able to work with and have fun with all of the children and kept their attention focused for the entire event.

The STYLE program was an eye-opening experience. Nate and Geoff were extremely engaging. I was amazed that my students wrote an entire song in only three class periods. It was absolutely one of my favorite days as a teacher. We would love to have them come back!

I love the way they took our theme statements and created a rap.  When key statements are set to music in this way, it is easy to recall.  This then can become an "anchor" point to refer to all during the year.
