You Write The Song

Group Size: min 25 - max 200 | Duration: 1.5 - 3 hours
Get Started


You Write the Song is a creative group activity that uses music to reinforce key themes. Participants work together to write lyrics to popular songs based on meeting topics and content.


Music stimulates memory centers in the brain, enhancing participants’ ability to retain the subjects they are writing about.


Facilitators teach band members how to play and work together as a team. Participants are energized and motivated by what their team can accomplish.


The activity culminates in a Battle of the Bands competition where teams perform their song for the rest of the group with an option to  dress in rock star costumes.

How it Works

  • You Write The Song's emphasis is on collaboration, creativity and storytelling.
  • Led by experienced song writers, participants are formed into teams (bands). 
  • Each team is assigned a song and provided the original lyrics. Teams are given a topic that fits the themes for the event and write new lyrics for the song, reinforcing key phrases and takeaways.
  • Following rehearsals each team takes the stage and performs their song backed by recorded music or live band.
  • Optional costumes are provided so participants can look and feel like rock stars!
