Taking music from the CD to CDA

“Each utterance is filled with echoes and reverberations of other utterances.” -Bakhtin
Music is a big part of our students’ lives, but how much of it do they really understand, comprehend?
In this workshop we aim to take the music from simple listening pleasure to a deeper level of understanding through an analysis of what the lyrics “say” with Critical Discourse Analysis, providing ready-to-use examples.
Join us if you believe in the power of music and if you agree that although teaching teenagers and young adults can be challenging at times, it is also fascinating and rewarding, full of interaction and fun.
