The music we listen to can influence us in many different ways. In this demonstration, I’d like to take that a step further and talk about the way you can use music to create your writing piece. The writing that you are doing can be influenced by the lyrics, the tempo, and the beat in the music. Let’s practice writing with different genres of music and see what kind of products come out of it.
You will need: a calm, comfortable setting; a timer; your writing journal; a pen.
If you’d like, you can choose your own songs that fit the genres we discuss, or you can just go with the ones I’ve chosen.
