slide10

Songwriter's Responsibilities

  • Write songs
  • Create lyrics
  • Sell songs to artists
  • Are present at recording studios to make sure their song is the way they want it
slide11

Only 3%?

  • Songwriters only receive 3% of the money made on a CD
  • We feel that songwriters should get more money because they are the base of making CDs.
  • If there were no more songwriters, there would be no more music!
without songwriters there would be no more music as we know it

Remember...

Without songwriters, there would be no more music as we know it!

making a decision
After the presentations, groups of six students debated what would be the best answer to the question.

They created a new graph based on their decision.

The graphs were presented to the class along with their rationale behind their decision.
