Because music is a powerful, unifying tool—and because many of us are seeking inspiration and togetherness—we’ve created Words & Music at Home, an online extension of the Museum’s flagship music education program, Words & Music. By using the resources on this page, you can learn how to write your own original song lyric, and get tips on putting those ideas to music.
Let’s get started!
Here is a step-by-step guide to lead you through the lyric-writing process.
