Kid Pan Alley - Inspiring Kids to Create Their Own Music - About

Paul Reisler, songwriter, composer, master songwriting teacher and founder of Trapezoid, learned this during an elementary school songwriting residency project in rural Rappahannock County, VA.
There, he co-wrote over 50 songs with all 600 children in the county. The songs were funny, touching, goofy, gross-and completely enchanting. They turned out to be so good that Reisler asked a number of the county's professional musicians-many of them nationally and internationally known-to record one song each in their own style. Paul Reisler and Terri Allard wrote songs with children during 8 week-long residencies at 8 schools in Charlottesville. One day, Paul Reisler brought a Kid Pan Alley workshop to her class. The resulting song, "Whispering in Spanish" combined English verses with a Spanish chorus to create a magical love song joining child-like imagination with the craft of a songwriter who has written over 3000 songs. Not only did Cecila have a lot of great ideas for the song but she also translated for the other kids as they worked back and forth in English and Spanish. A week later, Paul came back with some musicians from the Nashville Chamber Orchestra and they arranged the song. HOW IT WORKS http://bit.ly/aYcZeQ: Songs are generally written in one or two class periods with the students working in a group process developed by Paul Reisler.
