Video One:

Uncovering the Chorus

This first lesson introduces us to the two basic parts of a song - the verse and chorus. We will also study poetic devices such as repetition and rhyme, and how they are used to transform text into lyrics. Ms. Hanzlik also introduces us to the song we'll be learning to perform: "We Are" by Jon Batiste.
