Whether your students are completely new to songwriting or are more experienced writers who want to streamline their creative process, We think you'll really love this class. Whatever style or genre you write in, it'll help you build songs more logically, more effectively and more easily, step by step.
We'll teach how to identify a good song idea, how to choose a great title, how to construct an effective lyric, how to write a good bridge, how to write catchy melodies – and much more. It's a repeatable, powerful way to go from a blank page to a finished song your students will feel good about, time after time after time.
We combine evidence based teaching and parent engagement to help students navigate both their emotional feelings and life.
Pete and the staff at APG "get it". They are able to meet the kids where they are and can relate to the highs and lows of high school. Then they are able to take that and turn it into a positive and impactful creative experience that the students will always remember.
Over the course of the three days we worked with them, Pete and his staff were able to create a rapport with the students that some teachers take years to build.
"Pete Bishop and his merry band of brothers, which includes Eric, Logan, and Ryan, Luke, Jason, Travis, and Johnny T always find a way to combine their music talents with my students to write, perform, and record their own songs. It’s something magical to see what they’re able to draw out from them, like laughter and support for each other and a willingness to share their musical talents of singing and playing of instruments.
They are great with the students and want to make sure that ALL students feel connected to the songwriting process."
Thanks so much, Pete and Eric, for your fun and interactive presentation . My students--from the fifth graders to the seniors--were actively engaged. Your presentations generated a great deal of interest in the after-school songwriting workshops. We are very much looking forward to to further collaboration with you!
We were completely blown away ... A priceless experience for our daughter .
Not only has our daughter grown musically. On a more personal note it has affected her on a much deeper level. Pete and his crew are literal life changers.

I thought it was a good learning experience and could have been a gateway for anyone interested in the music industry - Chaise
We knew we were asking a lot when we told Eric and
his team that we needed them to fill a 2.5 hour
assembly with 250, 8-12th grade boys. They didn't
hesitate to take the challenge, and we are SO excited
and glad they did. We have heard encouraging reports
from our students and our teachers/staff who attended the event. From the quality of the music, to the presentations, to the activities that they did with the students. These guys are relatable, engaging, and have an outstanding, much needed message to be heard by our youth. The presenters spoke our students language.
We have already begun the discussion regarding when
we can bring them back and how we can fund the
