In this lesson we look at using various musical techniques to give our songs a catchy, captivating and engaging middle 8. Holding a songwriting session is a great way to grab classes attention by getting them to write songs based on their own experiences in life. This lesson will help with both musicianship skills as well as english language skills. This lesson allows your kids to explore their expressive side and get creative!

Why not check out the famous middle-8 from the ‘George Ezra’ classic ‘Shotgun‘. Can your class recognise how the middle 8 section is different to the verses and chorus? What changes are made to make this section stand out?
