We had a song contest way back when, and we thought we'd bring it back! We know there are a lot of musicians here at the Rangers, so we're going to give you guys the chance to write a song, and for those of you who want to, to perform it. We'll give you a long deadline for this contest so you all have time! Alright? Let's get started!
You can submit 1 Entry per category! (If you would like to enter your song in the written category, and then also submit the same song performed, that is suitable.)
The theme for this contest is, "Scene from a Book" write a song about a scene from your favorite book. You can chose any book, find a scene that really grabbed you or made you feel something on a personal level. It could be a scene where the characters fall in love for the first time, so you could write about those sweet and innocent feelings, or it could be a lighthearted song about a scene that made you laugh, or it could be something more heavy about something more dramatic when something really caught your attention.
We want you to incorporate a sentence from the scene in the book you choose, into the lyrics of your song. Not all songs have to rhyme , you might use the words in the chorus. Make sure you upload it to youtube when you're done and credit the book you chose for the inspiration as well as the words you incorporated within the song.
You guys can write your song whatever way you want, as long as it's based on a book and pays homage to it. This will give you the chance to really think deeply about what book meant something to you, and what really touched you, and to express that through lyrics and music.
The theme for this contest is, "Scene from a Book" first step is to write the song, see above for criteria there. ^
Then perform your song. You can use any instrument, piano, guitar, bagpipes, whatever you desire! Or you could sing it. You could sing and use an instrument! Or you could sing/play while you have friends accompany you in singing and performing your song. You can perform your song however you'd like, just be sure the song is fully written, and that you make it meaningful. Do your best! Be sure you upload it on youtube. Remember, it doesn't matter if you're a beginner at your instrument or in voice or if you're a pro, the point is to express yourself! So have fun!
