- Coun-ting Down: Song-writing Seminar in Athens: During the Athens Meeting in May 2023, Michael Federspiel and Shannon Tibbs (University of Angers) proposed an original teaching sequence. After reflecting on the history of the folk song and studying its structure and themes, the students had to draft a song, respecting the constraints of this musical genre and prosody. The best text was set to music by the teachers, and from this result, the students had to write a storyboard. Click here to see the instructions and the storyboard, click here to see the chords and lyrics of the song Coun-ting Down, and click here to listen the song produced by the students and set to music by the teachers.
