Connect. Collaborate. Create.

Five Day Residency

Over five days, STYLE will take students on a journey from finding inspiration in a book, guiding them through literary analysis and reflection, facilitating a collaborative songwriting process, and culminating with recording students’ creations in a professional recording studio environment. Students will build a deeper personal and critical understanding of a book through collaboration with their peers in this creative, project-based learning experience. Each class will work with professional songwriters and musicians, producers, and studio engineers to complete this impacting project.

The Five Day Residency Program Includes:

  • STYLE teaching artist(s)
  • Performance of songs inspired by the book for each class
  • Cross-curricular lessons in ELA critical thinking and musical concepts
  • Extended in-class songwriting sessions for a number of classes
  • Password protected webpage for each class
  • Professionally produced instrumental track guided by the students
  • Professional mobile recording studio brought to your school
  • Recording of each class’s creation (Mp3 download made available on each class’s webpage)

We align with the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Skills.

Learn more about what the STYLE Five Day Residency program can do for your school.

Project Based Learning

Students work in a highly collaborative environment, building lasting connections to reading, music, fellow classmates, and the world.


We challenge students to think critically and connect the themes of a book to themselves, to other texts, and to real world problems.


Students collaborate in the songwriting process, applying their connections and conversations to generate a song inspired by the book.


Taking their collaborative work to the next level, students create artwork and a professional recording of their song using 21st century skills and technology.
