ICMP’s Songwriting Programme Leader Jonathan Whiskerd hosted a Lyric Writing Workshop as part of the London Mayor’s #SoundsLikeLondon month of music.

The free event took place at ICMP and saw a number of attendees explore lyrics and the creative process.

During the session, Jonathan said:

“Our learning doesn't focus on giving people any rules around writing songs or lyrics. Instead, we’re here to help facilitate independent learning. You develop from writing, then reflecting on what you’ve done.”

The group of students explored the concept of creating song maps as well as lyric-focusing during the event. 

Sounds Like London took place across June with a focus on supporting grassroots music. Find out more about the initiative.
